About the Company
In writing for the New York Times, Clive Barnes recently said, "Paul Taylor is a genius-and this is a word not to be used lightly." He has been a dominant force in dance for over two decades. From 1955 until 1962 he was a soloist with the Martha Graham Company, and in 1959 danced with the New York City Ballet as guest artist in George Balanchine's Episodes, a solo so uniquely his own that it was discontinued when he left the Company. Since the formation of his own company, Paul Taylor has choreographed over seventyfive dances for it.
Now in its twentysecond year, the Paul Taylor Dance Company has danced in over two hundred cities in the United States, completed twentyfour overseas tours, and represented the United States in the arts festivals of thirtyfive different nations. A recent tour of the Soviet Union (September 18 through October 15) with a total of twentyone performances in the cities of Moscow, Leningrad, Riga, and Vilnius, is the twelfth State Department tour the Company has undertaken. In addition to its current nationwide tour and a spring season in New York City, future plans call for a European tour in the fall of 1979 with dates already scheduled in London and Paris.
The Paul Taylor Dance Company has previously appeared here in 1964, 1965, and 1975; all dances this weekend are first Ann Arbor performances.
The two performances of the Paul Taylor Dance Company, plus two master classes in the University Dance Department, comprise a dance residency under the Dance Touring Program, with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Michigan Council for the Arts.
