Mark Morris: The man who put heart back into dance

Robert Everett-Green for The Globe and Mail

‘It’s great. It’s incredible. It’s a fabulous work of theatre. I wouldn’t keep doing it if I didn’t think it was real good.”

That’s choreographer Mark Morris, telling me what he sees when he looks at L’Allegro, Il Penseroso ed il Moderato, a piece the Mark Morris Dance Group (MMDG) has been dancing for 25 years and is bringing to this year’s Luminato Festival.
