Details

Choreographer Mark Morris, hailed by the New York Times as ‘The most successful and influential choreographer alive, and indisputably the most musical’, returns to Norwich with Pepperland, a unique tribute to the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

A joyous new work that kicked off Liverpool’s season-long festivities in 2017, Pepperland features an original score by Ethan Iverson. Arrangements of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, With a Little Help From My Friends, A Day in the Life, Penny Lane and other tracks from the album are interspersed with original pieces, composed to complement Morris’ profound understanding of classical musical forms and the blues.

A chamber music ensemble of voice, theremin, soprano sax, trombone, keyboards and percussion, teases out and elaborates on Sgt. Pepper’s non-rock and roll influences. Pepperland resounds with the ingenuity, musicality, wit, and humanity for which Mark Morris Dance Group is known, and the production is a riot of suitably psychedelic colour.

???? “... a truly joyous, celebratory work of art...brilliant homage to one of the great rock albums.” The Telegraph

???? “The choreography is deft and nuanced, at times skimming across the music’s bright surface, at times digging deeper” The Observer
