Born at a Mardi Gras party in Portland, Oregon, MarchFourth Marching Band has become one of the nation's best live touring acts -- and you can catch them outdoors on Pier 15 backed by beautiful waterfront views. More than just a concert, a MarchFourth show is a celebration, with stilt-walkers, unicyclists, fire eaters, puppets, flag twirlers, clown antics, acrobatics and more, accompanied by an eclectic big band in marching band costumes. Anchored by funky electric bass and featuring a 12-piece horn section and a 10-piece drum/percussion corps, MarchFourth takes you on a journey from the swamps of Louisiana to the gypsy camps of Eastern Europe to the African jungle by way of Brazil, while honoring the musical traditions of American funk, rock and jazz. Opening for MarchFourth is Brother Joscephus and the Love Revolution, a foot-stompin' gumbo of roots rock, old-school soul and New Orleans rhythms. Learn More

This group is fabulous. They present a unique choreography, fast moving, inventive, sensual and interesting. How they move at high speed, in close quarters, without colliding is amazing. There is also a great sense of humor in some of their work. I would like to see more of their work.
The Paul Taylor Dance Company launches its inaugural Lincoln Center season with 19 Taylor dances, including three New York City premieres. The premieres include The Uncommitted with music by Arvo Pärt, which looks at individuals who fail to create meaningful, lasting connections with other people. House of Joy finds procurers bringing clients to a house of prostitution where a sailor, a very old man and a tough woman each get their pick, and a young, inexperienced client is beaten for not being able to pay. In the hilarious Gossamer Gallants, with music by Bedrich Smetana, the company presents a comedic view of insect mating rituals, in which the female of the species is often the stronger, predatory partner. The engagement also celebrates the 50th anniversary of Aureole,” the dance that launched a golden age.
The repertoire includes works from 1956 through 2012 and features such evergreen Taylor works as Cloven Kingdom, Company B, Esplanade and Piazzolla Caldera, plus the long-awaited return of Junction.
