Quotes & Highlights

“Now the best NY has to offer in dance” —The Observer
Troilus and Cressida (reduced) is a Marx Brothers romp!” —Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
_"_His towering talent has captured our joys, tenderness, fears and absurdities in fresh, imaginative movement that makes his group one of the most appealing dance companies in the country. His extraordinary dancers move like angels—swift, graceful, daring—and, when the occasion calls, with demonic fierceness…" —The Washington Times

Description

“No other choreographer has created such a probing portrait of the American psyche as Paul Taylor,” says the_ Washington Times_. “Banquet of Vultures conveys post-September 11’s sense of terror like nothing else I’ve seen on stage, capturing the hopelessness, doom-laden despair and mindless brutality at large in the world…The over-the-top, hilarious_ Troilus and Cressida (reduced) _[is] a decidedly offbeat version of the Shakespeare play set to suitably bouncy music.  No one can do funny better than Mr. Taylor and his dancers’ split-second timing and goofy moves…The audience [was] roaring with laughter.”
