Item description for Mark Morris by Joan Acocella...

Mark Morris emerged in the 1980s as America's most exciting young choreographer. Two decades later, his position remains unchallenged. Morris was born in Seattle in 1956. His Mark Morris Dance Group began performing in New York in 1980. By the mid-eighties, PBS had aired an hour-long special on him, and his work was being presented by America's foremost ballet companies. Morris's dances are a mix of traditionalism and radicalism. They unabashedly address the great themes--love, grief, loneliness, religion, community--yet they are also lighthearted, irreverent, and scabrous.

Joan Acocella's probing portrait is the first book on this brilliant and controversial artist. Written with Morris's cooperation, it describes how he has lived and how he turns life--and music and narrative--into dance. Including 78 photographs, Mark Morris provides an ideal introduction to the life and work of one of America's leading artists.
