Mark Morris Dance Group at the Mostly Mozart Festival - August 18-20 in New York City

From a release:

Mark Morris Dance Group
August 18 - 20, 2011
Rose Theater at Lincoln Center, New York City


Part of the Mostly Mozart Festival

Mark Morris returns to MMF with the NY premiere of Renard paired with Socrates and the exceptional new Festival Dance in a program unusually broad in its musical and stylistic scope.

Renard, with sets by Illustrator Maira Kalman, is Morris' most recent work and these performances will be its New York Premiere. With scenic design by illustrator Maira Kalman and set to Stravinsky's short opera of the same name, it had its world premiere recently at the Tanglewood Music Fesitval, where MMDG has performed since 2004 and remains the only dance company to ever be invited to that music festival.

Festival Dance, Morris' 150th work in his professional career and created for the company's 30th anniversary performances at the Mark Morris Dance Center in March, was called "Simply exhilarating" by The New York Times. Morris finds inspiration aplenty for his inimitable reworking of Middle European folk dancing into full-bodied modern-dance theater. (Wall Street Journal)
