Groundbreaking choreographer Merce Cunningham is celebrated in this 3D documentary combining archival footage and newly staged performances of 14 of his landmark works. What Kovgan’s utterly transporting film does, through a thoughtful and dynamic combination of curated material and new performances, is radiate the rapturous power of dance. It embodies the daring of a peerless innovator taking the art form to places it had never before gone. The only voices heard in Cunningham are the choreographer’s himself, the founding members’ of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, and artists who collaborated in his life’s work, including his life partner — John Cage, Robert Rauschenberg and Andy Warhol. – The Hollywood Reporter

Co-presented by Winnipeg’s Contemporary Dancers.

Reviews

A craftsman whose precision, rigor, and imagination could take your breath away. Our proximity is enhanced by the magic of 3-D…. jarringly beautiful and slightly mind-bending. Cunningham tapped into that feeling (ecstasy) - and in Kovgan’s film, it shines from every frame. 
– Marina Harss, The New Yorker
Thrilling. An excellent introduction to a great body of work.The elegant camera movements and dramatic settings chosen by Kovgan…are beautiful.
– Brian Seibert, The New York Times
