About this title


Known worldwide for his remarkable, groundbreaking choreography, Merce Cunningham has a secret: he also draws. For the first time he opens a door into his fantastical animal kingdom with Aperture's publication of Other Animals. Cunningham, an obsessive observer with a colossal sense of humor, revels in nature with the same childlike vision and expressiveness that infuses his dances. Like his dances, his drawings are impressions, inventions, gestures and interactions. Cunningham introduces us to a bird riding a turtle, a bizarre hybrid creature wearing a fashionable sweater and an ostrich that rivals the gracefulness of his dancers.
The drawings are collected in a beautifully produced, colorful volume, with selected entries from Cunningham's journals and photographs of some of his dances and their notations. These drawings offer a key to understanding how Cunningham renders his vision of the world through dance--and how his vision is translated into costuming through his collaboration with designers such as Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garconnes.

From the Publisher:

Evocative and playful sketches from one of America's greatest living artists.

Merce Cunningham is an observer with a grand sense of humor who marvels at and revels in nature with the same childlike vision, openness, and attention to detail that infuse his dances. Using ink and colored pencils on paper, Cunningham creates a fantastical wonderland for the unexpected, exotic, and peculiar to roam free, coexist, and inspire the imagination. The drawings, collected and published here for the first time, along with selected entries from Cunningham's personal journals and juxtaposed with photographs of some of his dances and choreographic notes, reveal much about both his creative spirit and approach to his work.

Merce Cunningham is one of the greatest American choreographers of all time. He recently celebrated fifty years of his renowned dance company, documented in Merce Cunningham: 50 Years.
