Mark Morris Dance Group

FRIDAY, MAY 17, 2019

Venue Matthews Theatre

OVERVIEW

Since their debut in 1987, Mark Morris and his unique company of dancers and musicians have become perennial favorites of McCarter dance audiences. The four works he will bring to McCarter this spring are all set to the quirky and irrepressibly kinetic music of the American composer Lou Harrison (1917-2003) and played live—a Mark Morris trademark. The program will include the McCarter premiere of his latest Harrison-inspired work, Numerator, plus the culmination of this great artistic partnership, Grand Duo, which Alastair Macaulay of The New York Times called “an enduring masterpiece; I’ve seen it often, and it invariably awes me.”
