Sounds of India: Pre-Performance Discussion with Mark Morris

6:15pm - 11:15am

Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College

New York, New York — United States

Join Mark Morris for a discussion on the Mark Morris Dance Group performances at the White Light Festival's Sounds of India

Mark Morris has sojourned to South India for decades, transforming ancient movement and form into inventive works with his own signature. For this special White Light Festival program, the Mark Morris Dance Group reprises two India-inspired Morris solos, as well as a humorous duet set to a lively Tamil film score. The program culminates in a radiant world premiere with music by Terry Riley, inspired by Morris’s travels to the region.
