ABSTRACT

I have worked as the filmmaker-in-residence for the Merce Cunningham Dance Company since 1983. My association with Cunningham began in 1977 as a cameraman and production assistant to Charles Atlas, who was the filmmaker at that time. Since I have been the filmmaker, my work with Cunningham has included a series of dancefilms and videos, two educational programs, and a feature-length documentary detailing his fifty-year collaboration with composer John Cage.
