Artist Conversation with Mark Morris

Cal Performances Executive and Artistic Director Jeremy Geffen and the always-entertaining Mark Morris sit down to discuss the special and decades-long relationship between the two organizations, the role Cal Performances plays in what Morris can produce and the wonderful problem of having full-length pieces much of the time at Zellerbach Hall versus shorter repertory, the history behind the pieces of the program, the deliberateness of Morris’s unusual (for dance) music selections, and more in this Beyond the Stage artist talk.

This artist conversation video is presented in conjunction with Mark Morris Dance Group’s Cal Performances 2021/22 visit on Dec 17–19.
