Triple-Paced

"Triple-Paced" was presented on the first joint concert of solo dances and music given by Cunningham and John Cage. Cunningham performed six solos, all with music by Cage. "Triple-Paced" was a solo in three parts, each with a different tempo. "That's what the title was about," Cunningham explained, "there was a medium part, and a very slow part, and the last part very fast."
