Mark Morris Dance Group
Choreography by Mark Morris
MMDG Music Ensemble
Featuring a special appearance by The Bad Plus

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.

In Program B the company presents the New York premiere of Spring, Spring, Spring, a looming rendition of The Rite of Spring, based on an ultramodern arrangement of Stravinsky’s classic score by acclaimed jazz trio The Bad Plus, who performs live. The evening opens with Crosswalk, Morris’ energetic take on a clarinet and piano work by Carl Maria von Weber, full of dizzying patterns and symmetries, and Jenn and Spencer, a passionate duet set to Henry Cowell’s restlessly searching Suite for Violin and Piano from 1925.
