As the naughty boy of ballet, Paul Taylor is known for being one of the 20th century's most eminent cutting-edge choreographers, producing a breadth of work that showcased his incredible talent, never shying away from subjects often ignored by the art-form. Humorous and romantic, his compelling voice still carries on today as he creates even more pieces for his world-famous dance company and commissions works from a new generation of choreographers, continuing the legacy of modern dance.
The magnificent 2018 line-up by the Paul Taylor Dance Company features 13 classic and a world premiere by Paul Taylor, work by Lila York, commissioned by Taylor from Doug Varone and Bryan Arias. There will also be performance from special guest artists Sara Mearns, who'll be dancing work by Isadora Duncan, and the Trisha Brown Dance Company dancers will also be performing.
ICONS: Trisha Brown, Isadora Duncan, Paul Taylor, will take place March 18. The Orchestra of St. Luke's will perform on every programme.
