WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Mark Morris Dance Group was formed in 1980 and gave its first concert in that year in New York. In the following years, the company s touring schedule has steadily expanded to include cities across America and Europe. Once considered the bad boy of the modern dance world, Mark Morris is now an influential and internationally celebrated choreographer whose pieces have become the standard of creativity for a new generation of dancers, choreographers and critics.
Programme A includes The Muir, an evolution of the graceful yet powerful Cease Your Funning, while Socrates features Erik Satie's eponymous score ? a three part drama which continues Mark Morris' commitment to live music in performance. The programme is completed by the new ensemble work Crosswalk. Running time: 1hr 40mins (including one 20min interval)
