The master of American contemporary dance, Mark Morris, has become the benchmark of creativity for a generation of dancers, choreographers and audiences. Morris has created dances for more than 30 years, which have ranged from the austere to the joyful, able to switch from the deeply moving to the downright silly. Celebrated by critics for his inventive and imaginative choreography, Mark Morris comes to Aberdeen for the first time in this UK exclusive performance.
The programme, all accompanied by live musicians, includes his stunning interpretation of J.S. Bach’s Italian Concerto, the recently unveiled duet Jenn and Spencer, his exhilarating Polka, and A Wooden Tree, set to recordings by Scottish poet, Ivor Cutler, as well as a brand new work, Words, which premieres in New York just prior to this trip.
