Paul Taylor Dance Company In Paris (Episode #3802H)

KQED 9: Sun, May 5, 2013 -- 12:00 PM

Paul Taylor is the last living member of the pantheon that created America's indigenous art of modern dance. At an age when most artists' best work is behind them, Taylor continues to win acclaim for the vibrancy, relevance and power of his recent dances as well as his classics. The world-renowned Paul Taylor Dance Company has set the global standard for contemporary dance excellence. Since the company's founding in 1954, Mr. Taylor has choreographed 136 dances, many of which have attained iconic status and have been celebrated throughout the world. Taylor has achieved countless accolades, including two of our nation's highest artistic distinctions: the Kennedy Center Honors and the National Medal of Arts.
This episode presents two of Paul Taylor's masterworks. The dances were recorded last year at the Theatre National de Chaillot at the Festival Les Etes de la Danse 2012, where the company - a Paris favorite - dazzled audiences. The engagement in Paris marked The Company's 50th Anniversary of its first appearance there in 1962.
