Paul Taylor Dance Company
October 17 & 18, 2014 • 8:00 p.m.
Choreographer Paul Taylor is the last living member of the pantheon that created modern dance. Taylor, whom Martha Graham famously referred to as the “naughty boy” of dance, continues as he has since 1954 to win public and critical acclaim for the vibrancy, relevance and power of his creations. While he may propel his dancers through space for the sheer beauty of it, he more frequently uses them to illuminate such profound issues as war, piety, spirituality, sexuality, morality,
and mortality. With unrivaled creativity and monumental taste, he is a cultural icon, offering cogent observations on life’s complexities while tackling some of society’s thorniest issues.
Pre-performance discussions: For insight and increased enjoyment, ticket holders of the October 17 & 18 evening performances can attend free pre-performance discussions with members of the Company in The Forum at Diana Wortham Theatre at 7:00pm both nights prior to the 8:00pm performances. Seating is limited and offered on a first come, first served basis. We regret that we may not admit patrons to the discussions after 7:10 p.m.
Tickets: Regular $45; Student $40; Child $20
