Merce Cunningham interviewed by Foofwa d'Imobilité, July 2000, Vienna, Austria Merce-Art Forever!" project
Part I: Inter-face to face-view
Merce Cunningham interviewed by Foofwa d'Imobilité - July 29 2000 -
Vienna, Austria - 23 minutes – subtitles in the making, translation in
French by Odile Ferrard, Léa Lescure and Foofwa.
“I knew that Merce had a video camera, so I gave him a cassette and
asked him to record me as I was recording him. It gave an informality to
the interview, which I like. The interview is important to me because
it shows that Merce wanted his work to survive him, as he says it in
numerous interviews until 2008. I happen to have it on tape.” Foofwa d'Imobilite
« Merce-Art Forever! » is a project by Foofwa d'Imobilite / Neopost
Ahrrrt about the legacy of Merce Cunningham. It is composed of
interviews, readings, manifestos, dialogs, and different viewpoints, all
related to the present, past, and future of Merce's work. It is a way
to study and promote this legacy, which is certainly one of the most
important for dance in the past century. Foofwa will make these
documents available to the public for free and non-commercial
distribution, sharing (with credits of course) being the ultimate goal.
