The Mark Morris Dance Group has enjoyed a long relationship with Meany Center for the Performing Arts (formerly UW World Series). Since 1987, the group has returned 18 times to perform on the Meany Hall stage, including four premieres.
Meany Center's mission is to present diverse and dynamic live performances and educational experiences that fuel artistic discovery, life-long learning, and cultural exchange. It is integral to the University of Washington’s commitment to the local and global communities in which it exists.
Meany Center enjoys an international reputation as one of the Northwest’s premier centers for performing arts presentations and arts education. As a community resource, the Meany Center provides audiences of all ages access to critically-acclaimed artists of diverse cultural and artistic perspectives from across the globe. Furthermore, our presence on the University campus opens doors for exciting cross-disciplinary partnerships to explore how the arts and creative practice can combine to forge powerful learning experiences.
This program consists of four distinct performing arts series: World Dance, World Music & Theatre, President’s Piano, and International Chamber Music. The education component of the program is called Community Connections. Performances take place in Meany Hall for the Performing Arts, just off of Red Square on the UW Seattle campus.
