Working with choreographer Mark Morris was once described as "about as much fun as you can have legally and in public" -- and that sense of almost dangerous delight spreads from the stage to the audience during every performance of his world-famous company. Now the Mark Morris Dance Group returns to their West Coat "home-away-from home" -- Cal Performances' Zellerbach Hall -- for two programs filled with Morris' latest repertory gems, plus a reprise of the hit of the 2013 Ojai North Festival (his acclaimed take on The Rite of Spring entitled Spring, Spring, Spring). Inspired by quirky Scottish folk songs, Modernist Americana and Romantic chamber music, these pieces showcase Morris' eclectic musical tastes as much as his dynamic (and world-famed) choreography. See event description for more information about both programs. Learn More

I liked some of the pieces yet others fell flat. The dance in all black costumes with mirrors was kind of interesting and funny. There was one beautiful piece set to slow music. The last piece went on too long with the same type of dancing and music. Wish it had been switched up more.
