Press Quotes

"The choreography in "The" seemed to flow out of the dancers like water or a passing breeze. The movements and the music matched each other seamlessly. So did the flowing costumes, which fluttered each time the dancers moved in unison in small groups across the stage."

- Mass Live

"Those sweetly jubilant duos — male-female, male-male, female-female — said so much, as dance often does, without a word."

- The Boston Globe

"It’s beautiful, it’s wonderfully strange, and — “The” being one of Morris’s friendly frolics — it’s all good."

- The Boston Globe

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.
