Mark Morris Dance Group – Pepperland

20 March - 1 May

★★★★

“Pepperland is kaleidoscopically beautiful – evokes a sense of hope, whimsy and wonder.”

“Often surprising but always a pleasure.”

“One of America’s most witty, musical and exuberant choreographers. Mark Morris Dance Group gives an innocence and freshness to one of the best-selling albums of all time.”

★★★★

“If ever there was a moment we needed a show of unbridled joy, surely it’s now. Inspired, quirky, witty and joyful in equal measure. A sublime and sunny evening.”

★★★★

“At only 70 minutes without an interval, you’re unlikely to find a more concentrated little pill of happiness anywhere. Go! An explosion of colour and exuberant dancing.”

★★★★

“Jaunty choreography, which feels playful and spontaneous, and a stage in rainbow colours makes for a delightful, infectious Beatles tribute... infectious, clever, romantic and droll.”

★★★★

“Tremendous fun – blissfully original entertainment.”

“The Mark Morris Dance Group has long been ahead of all other dance companies in the flow and detail of its dancers’ response to music. And their qualities of focus, stillness, ease are ones that most actors would envy.”

“[Morris] is one of those handful-in-a-century creative spirits – think Picasso or Balanchine – who manage to hold our attention while challenging all expectations.”

“The musicality for which the choreographer Mark Morris is celebrated reveals itself on multiple levels and in mysterious ways. Two of his most peculiar gifts… are his capacities for responding to a score with a raw innocence and for exposing its deep neurological effect.”

“The skill of the great artist – whether a Michelangelo, a Mozart, a Mark Morris – is to fashion simplicity from complexity. The dances simply feel right, to the eye, intellect and nervous system.”

“A bright and expressive, joyful piece… an irresistible, dream-like hour. [2017]”

★★★★

“High-spirited, humour, eccentric charm and a joyous musical sensibility…guaranteed to raise a smile. [2017]”

★★★★

“Sunny and unpredictable. [2017]”

★★★★

“The choreography is deft and nuanced, at times skimming across the music’s bright surface, at times digging deeper. [2017]”

★★★★

“The dance, like the album, is a seamless synthesis of classical, vaudeville and psychedelia. [2017] ”

★★★★

“A gorgeously entertaining and witty tribute to the classic Beatles album. [2017]”

★★★★★

“A truly joyous, celebratory work of art – brilliant homage to one of the great rock albums. [2017]”
