"All Things Cage" is a weekly program featuring conversations between Laura Kuhn, Director of the John Cage Trust, and Cage experts and enthusiasts from around the world. If youd like to propose a guest or a topic for a future program, write directly to Laura at lkuhn@johncage.org.
Laura Kuhn talks with Nancy Dalva, a writer well known in dance circles who has long resided in New York City. Nancy has had an almost lifelong relationship with the work of Mere Cunningham, and in 2012, three years after the choreographers death, she was appointed the Merce Cunningham Trusts Scholar in Residence. Nancy produced and wrote the scripts for the web series Mondays With Merce, and also produced the videos in the Mondays with Merce Film Library, all of which are available on the Trusts YouTube channel. Nancys work with the Merce Cunningham Trust also involves her in assisting scholars, researchers, dancers, and students, and she engages quite happily in the many associations, possibilities, and adventures Cunninghams work still presents. Her current project has her knee deep in the beautiful footage captured at Cunninghams Dia:Beacon Events, which took place in 2007-2009. These Events were part of the larger Merce Cunningham Dance Companys Hudson Valley Project, which took place in partnership with Dia Art Foundation, Bard College, and the John Cage Trust.
The late Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer Kenneth Silverman once described his "Begin Again: A Biography of John Cage" (Knopf, 2012) as the hardest book hed ever written. This was because, as he put it, pick up any rock and theres John Cage! Indeed, Cage was not only a world-renowned composer, numbering among his compositions the still notoriously tacet 433, but a ground-breaking poet, a philosopher, a chess master who studied with Marcel Duchamp, a macrobiotic chef, a devotee of Zen Buddhism, a prolific visual artist, and an avid and pioneering mycologist. He was also life partner to the celebrated American choreographer, Merce Cunningham, for nearly half a century, and thus well known in the world of modern dance. Episode 054. EVERGREEN
