Dance: Dancing Honeymoon

Mark Morris Dance Group

Mark Morris' latest New York City premiere, now being performed on tour, is irresistibly zany--and very, very smart. Set to Ethan Iverson's delectably decorous salon-style arrangements of '20s pop songs, Dancing Honeymoon consists of 15 Chaplinesque vignettes through which Morris and his six yellow-clad dancers hurtle at breakneck speed. Like all great farces, this one is precisely calculated down to the last pratfall; even when the props start flying through the air, everything goes wrong right on time. Keep an eye on Julie Worden, who dances like a Thoroughbred filly and makes faces like Lucille Ball.
