“Short course in modern dance: in the beginning there was Martha Graham, who changed the face of an art form and discovered a new world. Then there was Merce Cunningham, who stripped away the externals and showed us the heart of movement. And then there was Paul Taylor, who let the sun shine in.” (Newsweek)
One of the seminal artists of the 20th and 21st centuries, Paul Taylor continues to shape the homegrown American art of modern dance that he has helped define since becoming a professional dancer and pioneering choreographer in 1954. Described as “America’s most magnificent dancing machine performing America’s most deeply communicative and wildly theatrical modern dance” (San Francisco Examiner) and “one of the few indisputably great dance companies in the world” (New York Post), Paul Taylor Dance Company is the perfect finale to our 15th Anniversary Season!
