  • Filmmaker Elliot Caplan captures the brilliant, one-of-a-kind, decades-long partnership between choreographer Merce Cunningham and composer John Cage. Both men, individually, revolutionized their own arts. Together, they produced dance pieces which, in their use of groundbreaking artists and pioneering approach to aural and visual forms, were unprecedented since the days of Diaghilev's Ballets Russes. Cage and Cunningham delve deeply into their philosophies of art, and their collaboration, with Caplan. In addition, their compatriots -- artists such as Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg, and dancers such as Rudolph Nureyev -- speak about their experiences working with these two geniuses.
