    Notes

    This film documents the fifty-year collaboration between two revolutionary American artists, composer John Cage and choreographer Merce Cunningham. Tracing the history of their renowned and enduring joint endeavors, the film explores the artistic and philosophical associations that Cage and Cunningham have had with a wide range of leading figures in the art, literary, dance and music worlds.

    Filmmaker Elliot Caplan combines eight years of world tour footage, archival material dating back to the beginning of their careers and interviews with principal figures involved in the Cage/Cunningham collaboration.
