What is merce Cunningham's dance style?


Wiki User

Merce Cunningham's dance style varied. He didn't believe in having the dance rely on the music nor the music rely on the dance. Most of the time he flipped a coin and had each side of the coin represent an element of the performance he may add in. He worked with John Cage, his music producer/life partner, who's interest in Zen Buddhism influenced on the works of Merce.
