It is with infinite sadness that we hear of the passing away of Merce Cunningham. If ever one doubted the reasons one did art, one only had to think of Merce. My most ecstatic moments of watching dance where watching the Merce Cunningham Dance company.
I sometimes felt I could have watched the work forever, it just made so much sense to me. I can’t think of many things as beautiful as those dance works.
His work had a profound influence on how we think of our little art form.
It seems inconcievable that we wont see him cheekily and humbly coming on stage for the final bow….
We shall miss him beyond words.
