As he appears in the text:

“Merce [Cunningham] began his career as a soloist with six years in the dance company of Martha Graham, the mother of modern dance, but left to start his own company, saying, “I wanted Dada, not Mama.” The two barely spoke for the rest of their lives. When he died and his company dissolved (as was his dying wish), Martha’s company (still intact many years after her death) moved into his former studio. They painted the austere white lobby a vivid orange.”
