Mark Morris Dance Group
Choreography by Mark Morris
MMDG Music Ensemble

 

The musically minded Mark Morris Dance Group returns with two programs representing two decades of the company’s diverse, passionate approach to contemporary dance paired with live music.

Program A showcases music by the preeminent 20th-century American composer Lou Harrison: Pacific—originally created for the San Francisco Ballet and now making its New York company premiere—is pure sophisticated elegance, while the colossal Grand Duo is a jagged tableau of ecstatic rhythms. Rounding out the program is Words, set to Felix Mendelssohn’s Songs Without Words, and the world premiere of a new work.
