How To Get Here

Unfortunately due to rain, this Saturday’s 10/1 performances have been cancelled.

Mark Morris Dance Group (MMDG) returns to Brooklyn Park Bridge, with two showings of a special, outdoor performance and an all-ages family-friendly workshop at Pier 1 Harbor View Lawn on Saturday, October 1.

Performances will take place at 2pm and 4pm, with the workshop held in between at 3pm.

The repertoire for both performances will include: Water, Greek To Me, Orfeo ed Euridice (excerpts from a larger Opera), and Dancing Honeymoon (excerpts)

During the Dance with MMDG workshop, members of the Mark Morris Dance Group will teach excerpts from Water and Dancing Honeymoon. The adaptive dance workshop is open to everyone and does not require any previous dance experience. It will include a teaching artist demonstrating from a seated position to welcome all levels of mobility to experience this class. The lawn is ADA accessible via the promenade around the pier.

Both performances and the workshop are free and walk up only. No advance registration required.

About Mark Morris Dance Group

Founded in New York City in 1980 by artistic director and choreographer Mark Morris, praised by The New York Times as “the most successful and influential choreographer alive, and indisputably the most musical,” the Mark Morris Dance Group has been called “the preeminent modern dance organization of our time” (Yo-Yo Ma). Its members have received the “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 Mark Morris Dance Group, which has toured with its own musicians, the MMDG Music Ensemble, since 1996. The Mark Morris Dance Center, opened in Brooklyn in 2001, is the home of the Dance Group and provides educational opportunities in dance and music to people of all ages and abilities.
