Seattle native Mark Morris — revered as “the most artfully musical choreographer alive” (The New York Times) — creates singular works that combine beautiful music, graceful movement and delicious wit. This season, his Dance Group performs three joyful works accompanied by the company’s own music ensemble: Words, set to 18 of Felix Mendelssohn’s 48 enchanting Songs Without WordsRock of Ages, performed to the adagio movement of Franz Schubert’s Nocturne; and Festival Dances, set to a piano trio by Johann Nepomuk Hummel that reinterprets ballet conventions.
