Morris dance group gives stunning performance at the Arsht
Jordan Levin for The Miami Herald
Mark Morris is known for the musicality of his dances, a simple statement that doesn’t nearly convey how richly rewarding they are. Certainly the three pieces that his Mark Morris Dance Group performed at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts on Friday night were beautiful examples of choreographic craftsmanship that illuminated their classical music scores. But they were also much more — so inspired by and united with their source that they made dance and music much more than the sum of their parts. As with the best works of George Balanchine, you could watch Morris’ dances repeatedly and still find something new in each viewing.
