The Mark Morris Dance Group returns to Krannert Center's Tryon Festival Theatre on the University of Illinois Urbana campus for performances Friday and Saturday evening.  Illinois Public Media's Brian Moline talked with Morris from his dance studio in New York.

Here are Morris's thoughts on his "Dance With Parkinsons" classes that are being used nationwide, including at the University of Illinois.

Here is a portion of Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 1 arranged for four-hand piano by Max Feder, which is the music for the dance, "The," which is on the group's program at Krannert.

This is the entire Lou Harrison "Trio for Violin, Cello, and Piano," which serves as the soundtrack for Morris's dance, "Pacific,"
