This year’s Melbourne International Arts Festival has scored a dance coup – with two of the world’s biggest names in contemporary dance - William Forsythe and Mark Morris.
First up is Morris's Layla and Majnun, a spectacular Azerbaijani dance opera collaboration between Morris and the Silkroad Ensemble, a musical group founded byone of the world’s most famous musicians, Yo-Yo Ma. Central to the work are Azerbaijani mugham vocalists, Alim Qasimov and his daughter and protégée Fargana Qasimova, who have rockstar status, including a UNESCO Music Prize, one of the most prestigious international prizes in music.
Forsythe's A Quiet Evening of Dance is a suite of his recent work that showcases the depth and breadth of his practice.
