Choreography by Paul Taylor

One of the exuberant dances from Mr. Taylor’s highly acclaimed collection of works set to baroque music.  Music by William Boyce accompanies a look at three kinds of relationships: supportive, competitive and flirtatious. “One of the few great art works created in [the 20th] century… exploring a new movement field of love and relationship.  The women dance into the men’s arms as if Shakespeare had only written Romeo and Juliet the day before yesterday.  One of the seminal works of our time… something extraordinary in the history of dance.” – New York Post

Banquet of Vultures

“Paul Taylor might be the only American choreographer I would trust with the subject of war and Banquet of Vultures is one of his most jarring and effective works… The choice of music is Taylor’s genius stroke… what one might have heard at Abu Ghraib.” – Paul Horsley, Kansas City Star

Promethean Fire

Set to three keyboard works by Bach as richly orchestrated by Stokowski, Promethean Fire examines a kaleidoscope of emotional colors in the human condition. All 16 Taylor dancers, costumed in black, weave in and out of intricate patterns that mirror the way varied emotions weave themselves through life. A central duet depicts conflict and resolution following a cataclysmic event. But if destruction has been at the root of this dance, renewal of the spirit is its overriding message. A program note quotes Shakespeare, from Othello: Promethean fire “that can thy light relume.”
