“The American spirit soars whenever Taylor’s dancers dance.” –San Francisco Chronicle
Dance maker Paul Taylor first presented his choreography with five other dancers in Manhattan on May 30, 1954. That modest performance marked the beginning of 64 years of unrivaled creativity, and, in the decades that followed, Mr. Taylor became a cultural icon and one of American history’s most celebrated artists, hailed as part of the pantheon that created American modern dance.
This year, the company commemorates the late Mr. Taylor with “Paul Taylor: Celebrate the Dancemaker,” a multi-year worldwide celebration of Taylor’s astonishing legacy as well as his vision of a future for modern dance. As part of this celebration they are bringing program of beloved masterpieces to The Purchase PAC on February 14.
The Paul Taylor Dance Company has traveled the globe many times over, bringing Mr. Taylor’s repertoire to theaters and venues of every size and description in cultural capitals, on college campuses and in rural communities – and often to places modern dance had never been seen before.
