The Guardian: The Top 10 Dance Shows of 2017

4. Mark Morris: Pepperland (Royal Court, Liverpool)
With Mark Morris, it always starts with the music. In creating this celebratory work for Liverpool’s Sgt Pepper at 50 festival the American choreographer worked with six boldly idiosyncratic reinventions of the Beatles’ songs, including a wonderfully arthritic version of When I’m Sixty-Four. With his 15 dancers dressed in a fusion of Carnaby Street and Woodstock, Morris had a choreographic ball, interpreting the world of Pepper through a nostalgic mix of disco, jive and free-form hippiness.
