Merce Cunningham is one of the most famous choreographers in the world. He has revolutionized the understanding of dance and movement with his Cunningham-Technique, philosophy and constructive-situational approach. The most important principles are torso and legwork, spatial awareness, rhythmic accuracy and the de-hierarchization of movement, space and music.
