With Pepperland about to tour the UK for 6 weeks we talk to designer Elizabeth Kurtzman about her striking costumes and what it's like working with Mark Morris...

The evening offered a sampler of Morris’s newly-minted works (A Wooden Tree, Jenn and Spencer and Crosswalk, all made in 2012-13) and his splendid Italian Concerto from 2007.
Mark Morris Dance Group – Programme B: Excursions, A Wooden Tree, Jenn and Spencer, Festival Dance – London
In this programme we got some shiny new toys, maybe quirkier than we imagined, but some definitely to keep and treasure.
What was curious about A Wooden Tree is that it did not include much dancing in the traditional sense. It was as if Morris had decided to do an experiment: to make a dance with as little dancing as possible, practically a pantomime.
