About the event

One of the seminal artists of the 20th and 21st centuries, Paul Taylor has shaped an entire generation of dancers. His legacy continues triumphantly into the present with Paul Taylor Dance Company under the leadership of Michael Novak, a company member appointed to the role of Artistic Director by Taylor before his passing in 2018.


These performances of the Paul Taylor Dance Company will feature two of Taylor’s masterworks. The beloved Company B, celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, is performed to songs by the Andrews Sisters. In a seminal piece of Americana, Taylor recalls the poignant dualities of the World War II era, from upbeat optimism to the sacrifices of war. The company will also present Esplanade, Taylor’s masterpiece composed entirely of pedestrian movement, inspired by the sight of a woman running to catch a bus. Set to J.S. Bach violin concertos, the masterpiece features a team of nine dancers brimming with Taylor’s signature youthful exuberance.
