His Mark Morris Dance Group began performing in New York in 1980. By the mid-eighties, PBS had aired an hour-long special on him, and his work was being presented by America's foremost ballet companies. Morris's dances are a mix of traditionalism and radicalism. They unabashedly address the great themes - love, grief, loneliness, religion, community - yet they are also lighthearted, irreverent, and scabrous."" ;
