Modern Dance Ensemble Perfromance
Oct 24 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Modern dance ensemble Mark Morris Dance Group will perform with live music on Friday, Oct. 24, at 7:30 p.m. at the Weis Center at Bucknell University.

The evening’s program includes five pieces: Excursions, A Wooden Tree, Words, Ten Suggestions, and Polka.

Founded in New York in 1980 by artistic director/choreographer Mark Morris, MMDG has been called “the pre-eminent modern dance organization of our time” (Yo-Yo Ma), receiving “highest praise for their technical aplomb, their musicality, and their sheer human authenticity.” (Bloomberg News).

In 1986 MMDG made its first national television program for the PBS series Dance in America. Two years later, the group was invited to become the national dance company of Belgium, and spent three years in residence at the Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie in Brussels. The company returned to the United States in 1991 as one of the world’s leading dance companies. From the company’s many London seasons, it has garnered two Laurence Olivier Awards.

The Dance Group tours domestically and internationally to great acclaim, and is distinguished as the only modern dance company with a commitment to live music at every performance, founding the MMDG Music Ensemble in 1996.

Tickets for the performance are $30 for adults, $24 for seniors 62+ and subscribers, $20 for youth 18 and under, $20 for Bucknell employees and retirees (limit 2), $10 for Bucknell students (limit 2), and $10 for non-Bucknell college students (limit 2). Special online-only discounted rate for youth who are studying dance — $5 for youth 18 and under. The code must be redeemed online at www.Bucknell.edu/BoxOffice. Enter code FANCYFEET as the special offer code.
