I received a link today to this 2006 televised performance of a piece by Merce Cunningham's long-time collaborator John Cage. I then learned of Cunningham's death and heard highlighted on Brian Lehrer's show Cunningham's process of not choreographing to music (music appeared in his pieces at dress rehearsal). So I thought this performance of 4'33 was an apt tribute, albeit unintentional. Cunningham was at the forefront of his craft and of the world of art to the end. His website, www.merce.org broke ground by streaming webcasts of rehearsals; he planned for the disbanding of his company two years after his death, pre-settling artistic questions about how to carry on his work.
Thanks, Aracelis for the link.
