HBD Merce Cunningham

April 16, 2020

Today marks Merce Cunningham’s 101st birthday. And his legacy continues as we celebrate his immeasurable contribution to the world.

Here are some of my favorite Cunningham quotes…

“Dance is an art in space and time. The object of the dancer is to obliterate that.”

“You have to love dancing to stick to it. It gives you nothing back, no manuscripts to store away, no paintings to show on walls and maybe hang in museums, no poems to be printed and sold, nothing but that single fleeting moment when you feel alive.”

“The only way to do it is to do it.”
