Summary:
Melange is a videodance by Merce Cunningham and filmmaker Charles Atlas, created over September 30 - October 2, 1999 during the filming of Atlas' documentary Merce Cunningham: A Lifetime of Dance. The videodance is comprised of a series of excerpts that alternate between the austere/minimal geometric spaces of INA Studios, Bry-sur-Marne, and the urban industrial landscape outside Les Frigos, an artists' squat-turned-contemporary arts complex in Paris' 13th Arrondissement. The scenes feature choreography that would later be incorporated into the dance titled Interscape (2000). The music is likewise comprised of selections from environmental sound recordings materials recorded for John Cage's Instances of Silence (1982).
