What a night at the Brooklyn Academy of Music last Thursday.

The Fort Greene institution honored choreographer Merce Cunningham with a gala to mark not only his 90th birthday, but his show, “Nearly Ninety,” a new collaboration with John Paul Jones (yes, the guy from Led Zepplin!), Takehisa Kosugi and Sonic Youth.

Actress Parker Posey was resplendent in her white jacket, and Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth, one of the collaborators on the Cunningham piece, was joined by Paul D. Miller (you know him as D J Spooky).

Dancers cheered Cunningham after the show.
