Modern dance pioneer Paul Taylor has witnessed what has happened to his contemporaries’ dance companies once they had passed on and he knows that if he want’s his legacy to continue without him then he needs to start planning now. And these changes are occurring as the company is getting ready to celebrate its 60th anniversary.
Taylor’s plans include presenting past masterworks of modern dance and works of contemporary choreographers in addition to his oeuvre and the dances he plans to continue to create, according to the New York Times Article.
The Paul Taylor Dance Company came to the Eisemann Center for Performing Arts in Richardson, TX in April 2013. You can view my Q&A with Paul Taylor about that performance and the company’s longevity here!
