Paul Taylor Dance Company returns for its twelfth consecutive season at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center with three performances over Columbus Day Weekend. The celebrated modern dance company continues the legacy of its late founder Paul Taylor under the new leadership of Artistic Director Michael Novak.

Sunday’s family matinee will consist of two pieces:

Syzygy (1987)
Dancers hurtle across the stage like so many celestial bodies orbiting and eclipsing each other.

Esplanade (1975)
In 1975 Paul Taylor, inspired by the sight of a girl running to catch a bus, created a masterwork based on pedestrian movement. If contemporaries Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg could use ordinary “found objects” like Coke bottles and American flags in their art, Taylor would use such “found movements” as standing, walking, running, sliding and falling.
