Mark Morris has been called “the most successful and influential choreographer alive” (New York Times). He formed the Mark Morris Dance Group in 1980 and has created a near-bottomless trove of original choreography. The company’s off-stage efforts are equally impressive; the dancers and teaching artists specialize in the use of dance techniques for Parkinson’s disease movement therapy. MMDG’s compassionate and inclusive approach to dance elevates their radiant, introspective stage repertoire. Their recitals, staged simply with pops of color, feature disarmingly fluid, multi-part routines that meld seamlessly with classical gems—by Satie, Handel, Stravinsky, and more—as well as ebullient contemporary scores.
