Hailed as “the most successful and influential choreographer alive, and indisputably the most musical” (The New York Times), Mark Morris is celebrated for deep, witty, poetic dance and an unwavering commitment to live music.

“A tour de force of artistic storytelling” (The Los Angeles Times), this audience favorite returns to the Ted Shawn Theatre for the first time in five years with seven performances, having amassed one of the most extensive Pillow performance record of any artist, appearing more than 20 times since 1986.

In a special remounting, the company performs Prelude and Prelude, an early work set to Henry Cowell that has not been performed since 1992; excerpts from Words, lauded as “expressing poetry beyond words” (Wall Street Journal); the beloved Grand Duo considered “one of the masterpieces of the late 20th Century” (The Guardian); and a new work set to music by French composer/pianist Erik Satie.
