Mark Morris was interviewed in the "New York Times," and it was published today (6 June):

My favorite quote is:

And so as soon as I was choreographing other people besides myself, which was very early on, I was making up stuff that I wanted to watch, as opposed to what I wanted to feel like.


I wish that were every choreographer's MO.

Wonderful point. Very funny (and insightful) interview. This is probably my favorite part:

haha! The man has no filter, and he's completely honest about how he views the world. Even though I disagree with him at times.

Here is my favorite quote (I've underlined below):
[size=4][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]

[/font][/size][size=4][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]Do you miss performing?[/font][/size]
[font=georgia, 'times new roman', times, serif][size=1][size=4][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]I don’t, believe it or not. I don’t miss the roar of the crowd. I still get that when I take a bow, if I milk it right. I’m not regretful, but I’m envious sometimes.

[/font][/size][/size][/font][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]But really, the entire article is quotable. [/font]
