Mark Morris Dance Rehearsal Excerpt

Praised as a refreshingly irreverent master, sometimes derided as a gimmicky smart-alec, Mark Morris has earned a reputation as one of the world's leading modern dance choreographers.

Critics have not always been sure what to make of Morris - or whether to take him seriously. Morris has collaborated with classical star Yo-Yo Ma, as well as Baryshnikov. Morris' work is often grounded in classical forms.
