A brief reminiscence produced for the 50th anniversary of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company. Merce Cunningham speaks about the beginnings of the company and provides various anecdotes regarding each decade of its existence as a potpourri of still slides and film clips of various Cunningham dance pieces plays. Toward the end, a list of every dancer who became part of the Cunningham corps [through 2001], along with the year of their joining the company, scrolls over the images.
