Few choreographers working today are cited more often than Mark Morris for musicality and standing within the music profession. This event will spotlight various ambitious experiments with music that Morris has conducted over the course of his career, including “music visualisations,” his homage to the radical collaboration of Merce Cunningham and John Cage and his treatments of large-scale symphonic scores never written for dance.
