Paul Taylor Dance Company returns to the Berkshires for its 14th year at the Mahaiwe with two nights of modern dance over Labor Day Weekend, featuring three works, “Aureole,” “A Field of Grass,” and “Brandenburgs.”
One of the most famous and dynamic modern dance ensembles of our time, the Paul Taylor Dance Company has been innovating and transforming the art form of modern dance since 1954. Founded by cultural icon and legendary dancemaker Paul Taylor, the 16-member Company houses 64 years of Taylor’s unrivaled creativity and over a dozen contemporary commissions. Known for multi-disciplinary collaborations, passionate expression, and thrilling athleticism, the Company has performed in more than 500 cities in 64 countries, representing the United States at arts festivals in more than 40 countries and touring extensively under the aegis of the U.S. Department of State, and continues boldly into the future under the leadership of Artistic Director Michael Novak.
This seminal work shot Taylor into the pantheon of the great modern dancers and choreographers. It is revered for its joy, energy, simplicity and beauty.
A Field of Grass (1993)
To songs sung by Henry Nilsson, “A Field of Grass” invokes America in the 1960s, where a central character experiences love, drugs, rebellion, and hope through his counterculture community.
Elegant and virtuosic, this is choreographic grandeur at its finest married flawlessly within the joyous atmosphere of Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos.
