When to see it
Mark Morris Dance Group present Pepperland
Mark Morris, “the most successful and influential choreographer alive” (New York Times), presents a dance world premiere for Liverpool.
Pepperland, which has been specially commissioned for the Sgt Pepper at 50 celebrations, will feature a re-imagining of tracks from the album intermingling with original pieces by composer Ethan Iverson.
Dancers will perform with a live septet of piano, voice, theremin, soprano sax, trombone, keyboard, and percussion.
These will be the only four performances of the show in the UK this summer - this is a must-see for dance and Beatles fans alike.
“This great album set a radical new direction for popular music and thought. I was just a child. 50 years later, with contemporary eyes and ears, we are presenting a comment and a rethinking of this profound cultural artifact with all of the imagination, surprise, humour, and bizarrity intact.”
— MARK MORRIS
