About the Show

Created for the City of Liverpool to celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club BandPepperland is a joyous display of Mark Morris’ choreographic wit and musicality. Ethan Iverson’s original score reimagines selections from the iconic 1967 album in bold new arrangements performed by a lively jazz ensemble of trombone, theremin, vocals, sax, keyboards, and percussion. Morris’ dancers—dressed in a riot of Carnaby Street colors—demonstrate why this dancemaker is noted as “the most successful and influential choreographer alive, and indisputably the most musical” (New York Times). It’s a “can’t miss” evening for lovers of contemporary dance AND music!

Themes

  • Choreographer Mark Morris says that his goal in creating this piece was not to recreate his youth or approach the music from a place of nostalgia. He wanted to re-imagine it and create something entirely new. He demonstrates that getting older isn’t just about looking back into the past and re-living “good old days.” How might our imaginations grow and change as we grow older?
