Taylor 2 ~ Paul Taylor Dance Company

Paul Taylor is one of the pioneers of modern dance. His choreography is noted for its physicality, grace and cultural relevance. In selecting repertoire for Taylor 2, Mr. Taylor chooses dances that span the broad spectrum of his work. Taylor 2 is modeled on the original (1954-version) Paul Taylor Dance Company and performs works created for that groundbreaking ensemble of 6 dancers.

Taylor 2 introduces audiences to the athleticism, humor and range of emotions found in Mr. Taylor’s work.

What the critics say:
“The dancing was spectacular, warm, gracious and daring. The repertoire is one to make a Taylor fan salivate: four great and very different works in one evening.”
~Mary Cargill, DANCEVIEWTIMES, April 16, 2010 reviewing Taylor2 at the Joyce, NYC

“Paul Taylor is without question the greatest living American choreographer. Taylor’s emphasis on emotion within actual movement, the rhythmic vitality of his accents, his all-American youthfulness and optimism, all have set standards for American dance.”                                                                     ~San Francisco Examiner & Chronicle
