PAUL TAYLOR DANCE COMPANY

Renowned for its innovative and emotionally compelling performances, the Paul Taylor Dance Company is known as the premiere institution for American modern dance. Under the direction of Artistic Director Michael Novak, the company continues to push boundaries and present groundbreaking works.

This performance will showcase the poignant Company B, set to the nostalgic tunes of The Andrews Sisters, the whimsical and humorous Offenbach Overtures, featuring the jubilant music of Jacques Offenbach, and the elegant Brandenburgs, performed to Bach’s timeless Brandenburg Concertos. This diverse program highlights Paul Taylor’s rich choreographic repertoire, blending exuberance, playful satire and classical sophistication for an unforgettable evening of dance.

ABOUT THE COMPANY

Two dancers from the Paul Taylor Dance Company dancing on stageThe genesis of the PAUL TAYLOR DANCE COMPANY occurred on May 30, 1954 in Manhattan, when dancemaker Paul Taylor first presented his choreography with five other dancers on the Lower East Side. That 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, and was part of the pantheon that created American modern dance. Leading the Company that bears his name until his death in 2018, Mr. Taylor molded it into one of the preeminent performing ensembles in the world. Under the artistic direction of Taylor alumnus Michael Novak, the Company continues to bring “America’s most communicative and wildly theatrical modern dance” to audiences and students around the world, with a yearly residency at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.

The Company currently resides in the Lower East Side of Manhattan but sustains a global presence through its robust touring programs. Since its first European tour in 1960, the Company has performed in more than 600 cities in 66 countries, representing the United States at arts festivals in more than 40 countries and touring extensively under the aegis of the U.S. Department of State. Dedicated to sharing modern dance with the broadest possible audience, the Company tours annually, both domestically and internationally, with performances and a variety of educational programs and engagement offerings. Recent tours have brought the Company to Argentina, Brazil, Chile, China, Ecuador, Germany, Italy, Oman, Peru, Switzerland, Taiwan, and Turkey, as well as scores of cities within the United States.
