Melbourne Festival is one of the world’s leading arts festivals, and one of Australia’s premier celebrations of arts and culture. Artistic Director Jonathan Holloway brings an unparalleled feast of dance, theatre, music, visual arts, multimedia and outdoor events from renowned and upcoming Australian and international companies and artists to Melbourne each October.

Layla and Majnun will mark the Dance Group's first appearance at the Melbourne Festival and its first commission of a Mark Morris work.

This engagement is supported by Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation through USArtists International in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Howard Gilman Foundation.
