The grand Festival Dance called for a dozen dancers onstage.

SPA's decision to bring the Mark Morris Dance Group to Houston as part of the Tudor family's celebration of dance was not only an inspired one, but an essential one. Mark Morris's dances are noteworthy in that they are not academic exercises or choreographies that are arranged by esoteric experiments in movement. Rather, they are full-fledged theatrical experiences through which dance can tell stories about the human condition, even if that includes a laugh or two.
