Press Quotes

"...one could just sit back and marvel at the talent of the dancers and Morris's mastery of choreographing masses of bodies with the precision of a music conductor leading an orchestra through a symphony."

- Rogway Report

"...seems absolutely right and logical for the music and yet fresh and unexpected at the same time."

- DanceTabs

"Morris's response to Barber's piece transforms Excursions from a fun romp to a poignantly abstract comment on the individual's struggle to find a reason to keep getting up in the morning."

- The Boston Phoenix

The mission of the Mark Morris Dance Group is to develop, promote, and sustain dance, music, and opera productions by Mark Morris and to serve as a cultural resource to engage and enrich the community.
