As part of Mark Morris Dance Group's 25th Anniversary celebrations, the master of American contemporary dance tours the UK, returning to Sadler's Wells with two specially chosen programmes.
Programme One starts with the tender and poignant Somebody's Coming to See Me Tonight reflecting the optimistic Americana of Stephen Foster's music, followed by All Fours which, by turns, is somberly austere and touchingly graceful. The programme concludes with a welcome revival of The 'Tamil Film Songs in Stereo' Pas de Deux, a humourous piece set to contemporary Indian music, and Morris's breathtaking masterpiece Grand Duo.
Programme Two sees Morris himself perform in the flirtatious From Old Seville, followed by the mysterious and powerful Mosaic & United. In the second half, Morris presents his newest work Candleflowerdance to music by Igor Stravinsky and the astounding V (winner of Time Out Live Award for Outstanding Production).
Both programmes include live music.
‘As a choreographer Mark Morris is some sort of genius, as a performer he is a star and as a showcase, his company is one of America's most viable dance exports.’
