Mark Morris Dance Group China Tours
Following the successful 2012 China premiere at the Guangzhou Opera House, Mark Morris Dance Group returned to China in 2014 for two stops in Shenzhen and Beijing, preceded by extensive outreach, workshops, and community exchange as part of the U.S. State Department DanceMotion USA program, and followed by additional outreach at universities and cultural centers as part of Ping Pong's American Cultural Center Tours (ACCT) program.
A fierce energy eats up space in a frenzied momentum which culminates in a transcendent moment of power. Astonishing stuff.
The preeminent modern dance organization of our time.
About the Artists
Mark Morris Dance Group
Founded in New York City in 1980 by artistic director and choreographer Mark Morris, the Mark Morris Dance Group (MMDG) has been called “the preeminent modern dance organization of our time” (Yo-Yo Ma), its members receiving “highest praise for their technical aplomb, their musicality, and their sheer human authenticity.” (Bloomberg News). Live music and community engagement are vital components of the Dance Group, which has toured with its own musicians, the MMDG Music Ensemble, since 1996. Through Access/MMDG programming, the Dance Group provides educational opportunities in dance and music to people of all ages and abilities while on tour internationally and at home at the Mark Morris Dance Center in Brooklyn, NY.
