Building a Legacy:
- Establishment of the Mark Morris Archive
- Creation of a reserve of new work
Mark Morris has made a significant cultural contribution to dance and music throughout the world. His abundant, incomparable repertory is of enormous consequence to the cultural landscape of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
Masterpieces such as L’Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato, Dido and Aeneas, The Hard Nut, and many more in Morris’ 180+ repertory remain timeless and compelling with much to offer future generations.
The Dance Future Fund ensures his work will be appreciated for decades to come by creating an archive and establishing Dances for the Future, an unprecedented legacy project to create a reserve of new never-before-seen works for premiere when he is no longer choreographing.
