One of the seminal artists of our time, Paul Taylor continues to shape the homegrown American art of modern dance that he has helped define since becoming a professional dancer and pioneering choreographer in 1954. The Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center celebrates its eleventh consecutive season of performances by the Taylor Company.

Gossamer Gallants
With movement inspired by blue-bottle flies, dragonflies and other insects, the comedic dance compares mating rituals of the insect world with that of humans. Male insects become aroused by females, who they begin to court. But the females prove to be predatory partners that do in their suitors.

New England premiere. Set to a violin concerto by contemporary composer Eric Ewazen, Concertiana contrasts agitated and explosive solos and duets with slower-moving groups in silhouette, suggesting the full range of human emotions. 

Company B
Just as America began to emerge from the Depression at the dawn of the 1940s, the country was drawn into the Second World War. In a seminal piece of Americana, Paul Taylor recalls that turbulent era through the hit songs of the Andrews Sisters. Although the songs depict a nation surging with high spirits, millions of men were bidding farewell to wives or girlfriends and many would never return from battle. The dance focuses on such poignant dualities.
