SPA welcomes the world-renowned Mark Morris Dance Group back to Houston with a program that will include A Wooden Tree, The Argument and Festival Dance.
A company who has captivated audiences for more than 30 years with its sophisticated artistry, extraordinary movement and overriding musicality. Christened "one of the greatest living choreographers" by the The New Yorker, Mark Morris is celebrated for his enthralling dance that combines wit and grace, and his unparalleled commitment to the use of live music.
Formed in 1980, Mark Morris Dance Group gave its first concert that year in New York City. MMDG was regarded soon after as one of the world's leading dance companies, performing across the U.S. and at major international festivals.
