For over three decades, this visionary choreographer has thrilled audiences and impressed critics with the exquisite beauty and delightful wit of his choreography, and the remarkable artistry of his dance group. Mark Morris's work, almost always performed to live music, is celebrated for its musicality, and he continues to experiment with the relationship between music and movement. This program includes two works set to music by Lou Harrison: Pacific, a renowned ballet by Mark Morris being performed by his company for the first time, and Grand Duo, which has been called “intoxicatingly thrilling” (Seattle Times) and “one of the masterpieces of the late 20th century.” (The Guardian) Words, a new dance set to Songs Without Words by Mendelssohn will be featured along with The "Tamil Film Songs in Stereo" Pas de Deux. "There is no other choreographer today with Morris' unbound imagination and the skill to realize it onstage." (The Washington Post)
