Merce Cunningham: 65 Years

by David Vaughn

Throughout Cunningham’s career, the choreographer, dancer, and artist engaged with technology. What better way to celebrate his legacy than with an app? Created by Aperture Foundation in collaboration with the Cunningham Dance Foundation, the app includes more than 40 excerpts from Cunningham’s dances (most including sound), interviews with Merce Cunningham Dance Company archivist David Vaughan, and excerpts from the web series Mondays with Merce as well as images from the last 15 years of Cunningham’s life and the Legacy Tour. Available on iTunes and as a web app on the Merce Cunningham Trust site.
