Legendary choreographer Mark Morris celebrates The Beatles in his critically-acclaimed Pepperland! Thanks to Morris’s distinctive wit, musicality, and inventiveness, Pepperland transforms The Beatles’ music into a performance that fills the stage with color and high-energy dance. This evening-length work features choreography set to new arrangements of familiar songs from The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band as well as original music by Ethan Iverson (formerly of The Bad Plus), all with live musical accompaniment by the MMDG Music Ensemble. With brightly hued Mod-inspired costumes, whimsical humor, and exuberant dance, Pepperland is “…a truly joyous, celebratory work of art…a brilliant homage to one of the great rock albums,” raves The Telegraph. Founded in 1980, the Mark Morris Dance Group is lauded as the world’s preeminent dance company. You won’t want to miss this much-anticipated cultural event of the season and the Mark Morris Dance Group’s Hylton Center debut!
