How old was Merce Cunningham when he died Sunday night?
Merce Cunningham, one of the great choreographers and a revolutionary force in American culture, died Sunday night. He was 90. “It is with great sorrow that we note the passing of Merce Cunningham, who died peacefully in his home last night of natural causes,” said a statement from the Cunningham Dance Foundation and the company. “He revolutionized the visual and performing arts—not for the sake of iconoclasm, but for the beauty and wonder that lay in exploring new possibilities.” Along with his musical adviser and partner, John Cage, who died in 1992, Cunningham created art in which the dance, the music and the scenery exist independently from one another—separate but equal, as in life. In the early ‘40s, as a dancer with the Martha Graham company, he turned away from storytelling, including her psychological dance-dramas. “Dancing, for me, is movement in time and space,” he said. “Its possibilities are bound only by our imagination and our two legs.” It is impossible to overestimate
