Today, the radical choreographer Merce Cunningham, who’s collaborated with everyone from John Cage to Robert Rauschenberg to Jasper Johns, turns 90—though one could easily argue that he’s just as young as ever. To celebrate the occasion, the Merce Cunningham Dance Company returns to BAM with the world premiere of a work created in collaboration with three cutting-edge artists, all performing live: Led Zeppelin’s multi-instrumentalist John Paul Jones, mixed-media sound composer Takehisa Kosugi, and veteran noisemakers Sonic Youth. Now, that’s a happy birthday!
