Paul Taylor Dance Company

Posted in Performances '15, 2015.

Paul Taylor Dance Company will be back to present the classic work Esplanade (1975). Set to Bach and based on everyday movement: walking, running, jumping, and sliding, the dance remains as daringly exuberant and eloquent today as the day it premiered. Syzygy (1987), set to Donald York’s abstract, pulsating score, is a virtuosic work that explodes with cartwheels, leaps, and meteoric spins. The title refers to the nearly straight line configuration of three or more celestial bodies. With decor by Alex Katz and lighting design by Jennifer Tipton, Last Look will round out the program.
