Mark Morris Dance Group
American Dance Festival at DPAC
Jul 27 - 28 , 2012
Since 1980, Mark Morris Dance Group has been creating dance works that defy the boundaries between modern and ballet. Heralded for their commitment to live music, their performances at ADF will present an exciting evening comprised almost entirely of works never before seen on the ADF stage including Festival Dance, a beautiful dance set to a tender and graceful piano trio by Nepomuk Hummel. In an homage to some of Morris’ earlier days, this lighthearted and charming work is a masterful blend of folk elements, intense musicality, and Morris’ signature movement aesthetic. The performance will also feature the waltz inspired work Canonic ¾ Studies (1982), Rock of Ages (2004), and Silhouettes (1999).
Post Performance Discussion: Friday, July 27
Children's Matinee Performance: Saturday, July 27, 1:00pm
