Don’t miss the
Mark Morris Dance Group’s return to the Prospect Park band shell
on July 26 at 8 pm as part of the annual performing arts series
Celebrate Brooklyn. The dance group will perform "Canonic
3/4 Studies" (1982) which is set to piano waltzes, "The
Argument," a 1999 work set to Robert Schumann’s Five Studies
in Folk Style, Op. 102, and "Gloria" (1984).
"Gloria" is an example of the long-standing ties the
Morris troupe, which opened its Fort Greene dance center in September,
has had with Brooklyn. The 18-year-old piece was the first dance
the group has ever performed at the Brooklyn Academy of Music,
and the classic work was last seen there in March as part of
their 20th anniversary season. "Gloria" (pictured)
is set to Vivaldi’s "Gloria in D Major."
The dancers will be accompanied by Mark Morris musical director
and pianist Ethan Iverson and cellist Wolfram Koessel for "The
Argument" and by Iverson for "Canonic 3/4 Studies."
The performance will take place at the Prospect Park band shell,
located at Ninth Street at Prospect Park West. For more information,
call (718) 855-7882 ext. 45, or visit the Web site at www.celebratebrooklyn.org.
Rain or shine. A $3 donation is suggested.
