Luminato, Toronto's new festival of arts and creativity, announces a rare Toronto appearance by the Mark Morris Dance Group. "Morris is considered the most exciting American choreographer around, and for anyone who loves contemporary dance this is an unmissable opportunity to catch up with a troupe that has been absent from this town for far too long," said the Toronto Star. The festival offers a range of innovative work in theatre, dance, music and the visual arts.
