American Modern Dance

Sunday, March 18, 2018 2:00 PM

Location: David H. Koch Theater


Choreography by Paul Taylor  |  Music by Richard Wagner and Heinrich Baermann

Set to music by Richard Wagner and Heinrich Baermann, Roses is a paean to love and relationships in various stages.  Some couples’ duets illustrate youthful ardor and love’s first blush.  A central duet suggests a more mature relationship characterized by support, security and the anticipation of one another’s needs.  Whether these are all distinct relationships or different stages of the same one is for the viewer to decide.

Half Life (Varone)

Mercuric Tidings

Choreography by Paul Taylor  |  Music by Franz Schubert

The Greek god Mercury was the messenger for all the gods. He would bring information to both gods and men. The word Tidings is a word that best translates as information that is brought to you. Mercuric Tidings therefore refers to the information or messages that are being brought to you by the god Mercury.
