PLYMOUTH — The Silver Series at Plymouth State University will present the Paul Taylor 2 Dance Company on Saturday, November 2 at 8 p.m. in the Hanaway Theatre at the Silver Center for the Arts.
Choreographer Paul Taylor is the last living member of the pantheon that created America's indigenous art of modern dance. At an age when most artist's work is behind them, Taylor continues to win public and critical acclaim for vibrancy, relevance and power of his creations. He created Taylor 2 twenty years ago to bring his vision into communities all over the world. Taylor offers cogent observations on life's complexities while tackling some of society's thorniest issues. He may propel his dancers through space for the sheer beauty of the movement, but more frequently he uses them to illuminate such profound issues as war, piety, spirituality, sexuality, morality and mortality. While his work has been iconic, he has also made some of the most purely romantic, most astonishingly athletic and downright funniest dances ever put on stage.
In selecting repertoire for Taylor 2, Taylor chooses dances that span the broad spectrum of his work. Several of the dances performed by Taylor 2 have been reworked from the Paul Taylor Dance Company's version to enable the smaller ensemble of dancers to perform them. Critics and audiences cheer as Taylor 2 introduces the athleticism, humor and range of emotions known to Taylor's work.
Taylor 2 has toured in the U.S. and internationally and has done extensive residences in Albany, Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, St. Louis and San Francisco.
The New York Times says Taylor 2 is a kind of miracle, "...All of the dancers are considerable talents [who] unite fearlessness with skill." The Sunday Star Ledger reports, "It's small, travels light, and packs some of the best modern dance around."
Tickets for Paul Taylor 2 at the Silver Center are $35-30 for adults, $33-28 for seniors and $20-15 for youth at the Silver Center Box Office, (603) 535-2787 or (800) 779-3869. Tickets are also available online at silver.plymouth.edu.
