It’s a flying leap from Mark Morris’s headquarters to BAM’s main stage, where he offers two programs surveying his choreography since 1993. His bluff, expressive modern dancers perform every piece to live music, ranging on Program A from the sophisticated tonalities of Lou Harrison, for Pacific and Grand Duo, to Mendelssohn for a new-ish work, Words, and to Debussy for the world premiere Whelm. Program B includes pieces to Carl Maria von Weber, Henry Cowell, and Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring arranged and performed by the Bad Plus.
