Mark Morris Dance Group

  • March 1, 2015 at 4:00 pm

Concert Hall

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) Additionally, a new dance set to Songs Without Words by Mendelssohn will be featured along with another work from the company’s extensive repertoire. "There is no other choreographer today with Morris' unbound imagination and the skill to realize it onstage." (The Washington Post)

Tango Buenos Aires: Song of Eva Perón

Direct from Buenos Aires, Argentina

  • March 7, 2015 at 8:00 pm

Concert Hall

This renowned company uses the art of tango to journey through the life of Argentina's larger-than-life former First Lady, Eva Perón. From her impoverished childhood in the slums to her position as one of the country's most powerful and influential figures, Perón's story is told in this riveting new performance by these celebrated dancers, singers, and instrumentalists. Tango Buenos Aires, one of Argentina's greatest cultural exports, is recognized worldwide for its authentic interpretations of this captivating dance. Tango originated in dance halls and brothels during the late 19th century, and soon captured the attention of European high society, establishing its reputation as one of the world's most seductive and passionate dances. "Swirling, fast-paced tapestries of movement, laced with proud postures and sensual couplings." (The Washington Post)

Can't make this performance but really want to see Tango Buenos Aires? They are also performing at the Hylton Center in Manassas Mar. 8 at 4 pm. Click here for more details.
