Renowned for its musicality and eloquently expressive contemporary dance, Mark Morris Dance Group has garnered unequivocal international praise throughout its 30-year history.

For the first time in its prestigious history, Mark Morris Dance Group performs in southeastern NC, presenting an unforgettable evening of expressive and inspiring dance with live music. The program features a diverse offering of the company's world-renowned repertory pieces, including “Italian Concerto”, with a live performance of music by Bach; “A Wooden Tree”, which premiered in 2012 and featured Mikhail Baryshnikov (music by Ivor Cutler); “Tamil Film Songs in Stereo”, a pas de deux featuring contemporary Indian music; and “Grand Duo”, a signature Mark Morris piece featuring 15 dancers, pianist and violinist (music by Lou Harrison).
