The Paul Taylor Dance Company has been at the forefront of modern dance since 1954, and Mr. Taylor -- the last living member of the pantheon that created American modern dance -- has choreographed 136 dances to date. The upcoming spring season is their first ever at Lincoln Center.

About the Performances
(Note: Mature content; appropriate for children 14 and older.)

Arabesque
Opus Number: 111
Music: Claude Debussy
Costumes: Santo Loquasto
Lighting: Jennifer Tipton
Date First Performed: October 15, 1999
“Fascinating… a mysterious world of archaic creatures and fleeting encounters. Fierce, impossibly swift dancing that blends earthy ferocity with skimming airiness.” – Susan Reiter, Newsday

Three Dubious Memories
Opus Number: 133
Music: Peter Elyakim Taussig
Costumes: Santo Loquasto
Lighting: Jennifer Tipton
Date First Performed: October 30, 2010
With this dance, Mr. Taylor explores the subjective nature of memory. He dramatically illustrates that events may be recalled differently by various participants, each of whom believes in the accuracy of their own version. “The mind remembers facts the way it wants them to be,” according to the dance maker.

Cloven Kingdom
Opus Number: 63
Music: Arcangelo Corelli, Henry Cowell, and Malloy Miller
Costumes: Women's Costumes by Scott Barrie, Headpieces by John Rawlings
Lighting: Jennifer Tipton
Date First Performed: June 9, 1976
“Man is a social animal,” said Spinoza. Just below the surface of humans’ civilized veneer lurks an animal nature that cannot be ignored. The scene is a cotillion ball where members of high society are dressed in formal attire – the gentlemen in tailcoats and the ladies wearing gowns and mirrored headpieces. A baroque score vies for dominance with urgent, percussive 20th-Century music, reflecting the struggle between our gentler and more savage natures. As primitive impulses emerge, the women plant seeds and bear progeny, while the men seem no longer to wear tails but bear tails. They prance and stalk on all fours, and their totemic friezes suggest the prehistoric ancestors from whom we have descended. Although the dance ends on a triumphant note with social structures intact, it has become clear that we are not separate from animals, we are animals.

“A sharp comedy of manners [about] the conflicting natures within people and, more specifically, the darker side that surfaces under the veneer of gentility. Revealing their true selves, the dancers turn humorously grotesque. The writhe as well as waltz, they crawl as well as glide. There’s so much movement-invention that it is hard to take everything in.” – Anna Kisselgoff, New York Times
