Merce Cunningham with Deborah Jowitt: Breaking Ground

Mar 21, 1994

Like many of his generation, Merce Cunningham performed at 92Y early in his career with Martha Graham's Dance Company (on 3 separate occasions in the mid-1940s) and then later in a few of his own works. This clip is an excerpt from his appearance with dance critic Deborah Jowitt for the "Breaking Ground" lecture series, established that season and has included such guests as Erick Hawkins, Judith Jamison, Twyla Tharp, Mark Morris, Bill T. Jones, and Jerome Robbins.
