"Dancemaker" Film Night

Bring a cozy sweater and settle in with a bag of fresh, complimentary popcorn at the Taylor Studios.

TaylorNEXT members and friends will enjoy a private screening of the 1998 film, “Dancemaker:”

A look at Paul Taylor (1930-2018) and his dance company over several months in 1997. Preparation of Taylor's piece, "Piazzolla Caldera," from conception and rehearsals to opening night at City Center, frames the film. The troupe's trip to India falls in the middle. Included are black and white footage of rehearsals, and, in color, interviews with Taylor, his dancers, dance critics and scholars, and those who manage the business side. There is also footage of a younger Taylor dancing and film of the troupe performing a dozen Taylor pieces. His genius, his roots, his method of working with dancers, and his sometimes difficult nature draw the attention of those who comment. —<jhailey@hotmail.com>
