The audience buzzes with electricity, then hushes as the house goes dark. The music begins, the curtain rises and the lights come up on some of the world’s greatest dancers. A Paul Taylor Dance Company performance has begun, and with it the silent but profound exchange between artist and audience member. When the dance ends the curtain rises, the dancers take their bows and a thousand people shower them with applause. Then Paul Taylor – the dance maker who has made it all happen – joins the cast onstage to the cheers of a delighted throng.
This is the magic of a Taylor performance. Now, come behind the scenes and find out what makes it all possible.
