Event Description:
Affectionately known as America’s dance company, the renowned Mark Morris Dance Group is acclaimed for its craftsmanship, ingenuity, humor and eclectic live music accompaniments—a feature of every performance since 1996—as well as its ability to make classical music visible through dance.

A native of Seattle, Mark Morris formed the Mark Morris Dance Group in 1980. By 1991 the Group had expanded its touring schedule to include major cities in the United States and Europe. Mark Morris became famous for many dances including The Hard Nut, a spectacular dance performance set to the Tchaikovsky Nutcracker score. Don’t miss one of the world’s leading dance companies.

The program includes Excursions, with music by Samuel Barber, “Excursions for the Piano,” with six dancers; Crosswalk, with music by Carl Maria von Weber, “Grand Duo Concertant” for clarinet and piano with eleven dancers; A Wooden Tree, with music by Ivor Cutler, with eight dancers; and Grand Duo, with music by Lou Harrison, “Grand Duo for Violin and Piano” with fourteen dancers.

"Whether the effect is joyous, bombastic or quiet as can be, the connective tissue in Mr. Morris’ choreography is rhythm."—The New York Times
