Sound & Fury Morris & Sword have been dancing around Seattle and the rest of the west coast of North America since the waning days of last century (1999 to be specific). These are dance traditions dating back, well, a long time, from various regions of England. Sound & Fury is proud to bring them to you, residents of the Pacific Northwest!
Traditionally, Morris Dance is a community-based activity. It is not a stage-oriented performance (though we don’t usually turn down a stage when offered!). Morris is a street performance tradition, with dancers showing up, often outside a pub, to perform close to their audience. When the performance is over, the dancers will retire to the pub, where their grateful, adoring audience treats them to the finest ales and ciders on tap!
MAY DAY 2020 – The Quarantine Edition Happy May Day, Morris friends! We’re so sorry that we can’t gather at Gasworks Park this year for our annual May Day celebration. We will miss seeing all of your smiling faces, beautiful flowers, and fabulous May Day attire.
