Details

Celebrating its 45th Anniversary in 2000, Paul Taylor Dance Company continues to combine the classical and the contemporary, presenting some of the most exciting and accessible performances in the history of dance. Programme One features Company B, Paul Taylor’s seminal piece of Americana, recalling the turbulent years of the 1940s. The nation lindys, jitterbugs and polkas to the Andrews Sisters and in sharp contrast a generation is drawn into the hell of the Second World War. With its spirited can-can dances, Offenbach Overtures conjures up the joie de vivre of the Belle Epoch. Promethean Fire examines a kaleidoscope of human emotions. Breathtaking waves of dancers in black velvet perform to Leopold Stokowski’s striking orchestrations of pieces by Bach.
