Mark Morris Dance Group - PEPPERLAND
Presented by Sony Centre for the Performing Arts and co-commissioned by Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity.
Choreographer Mark Morris, hailed by the New York Times as “the most successful and influential choreographer alive, and indisputably the most musical,” returns to Toronto with “Pepperland”, a unique tribute to the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ ground-breaking album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.
Accompanied live by an unprecedented chamber music ensemble of voice, soprano saxophone, two keyboards, theremin and percussion, Ethan Iverson’s original score intermingles six Pepper-inspired original pieces intended especially for Morris’s profound understanding of classical forms with arrangements of the songs Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, With a Little Help From My Friends, A Day in the Life, When I’m Sixty-Four, Within You Without You and Penny Lane.
