A sad day

I already posted a notice today for our community's loss here in Atlanta of Antonio Sisk, and then I see the news that Merce Cunningham has passed! He was 90, but still, what an icon of modern dance, and he was still making work! A link to the NY Times article.

  1. Merce was a rare visionary who dared, at every stage in his career, to break with convention and bring the living art of dance to new frontiers. In my estimation, he is the most important American dance artist that has ever lived. May his passing inspire us all to keep risking, because the future is paved with what we don't yet know and can't yet imagine.
