Points in Space:Merce Cunningham Dace Company DVD


This is the critically acclaimed collaboration for the screen by choreographer Merce Cunningham, composer John Cage, and filmmaker Elliot Caplan. The first half features BBC’s documentary: interviews with Cunningham, Cage and members of the company, as well as scenes from rehearsals in New York and London take the viewer through the complexities – and exhilaration – of bringing new dance to television. The second half features Points in Space performed by Cunningham and the Merce Cunningham Dance Company. Alister Macauley, writing for the London/Manchester Guardian asks, "Has anyone commanded perspective more beautifully on the small screen?"

"The camera work gives the sense of richness, as does a live Cunningham performance. Cage’s music, "Voiceless Essay," sighs, hisses, and whispers around the action. Everything works to plunge the viewer for a while into an enchanted world inhabited by sleek, strong people in spotted leotards, who move with the energy and determination of budding twigs in springtime." – Maggie Lewis, The Christian Science Monitor

"Superb examples of Cunningham’s talent that dance enthusiasts and students won’t want to miss." – Booklist
