Mondays with Merce: Mr. Cunningham and Mr. Morris

Mondays with Merce :The Legacy continues with "Mr. Cunningham and Mr. Morris," with guest artist Mark Morris. We visit the The Dance Center, home of the Mark Morris Dance Group, and go behind the scenes to the choreographer's office where he discusses his long experience of Merce Cunningham's work, and some remembrances of Merce himself. In turn, we show excerpts from Mondays with Merce interviews with Mr. Cunningham talking about Mr. Morris. See footage of the Mark Morris "Hard Nut," a favorite of Merce's, and see original film of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company in performances Morris himself attended. We also show archival film of "Second Hand," and the company in rehearsal at Westbeth, their home studio. These two choreographers held each other in high esteem and fond regard, despite, as Merce says, "thinking differently."
