A Modlin Center co-commission

Choreographer Mark Morris and the dance company that bears his name continue to innovate and create work that invites the audience into places both familiar and quirky – and the result is often extraordinary. “[T]he curtain rose on Morris’ exquisitely relatable dancers,” raved the San Francisco Chronicle, “and I found myself thinking not of comfort or inconstancy, but of transcendence.” The Look of Love is an evening-length work – co-commissioned by the Modlin Center – featuring the music of Burt Bacharach, performed live by Mark Morris Music Ensemble, music direction and arrangements by Ethan Iverson, formerly of the jazz trio The Bad Plus.

The NY Times shares a preview - “Yes, Burt Bacharach Wrote That. And You Can Dance to It."
