The Paul Taylor Dance Company, now in its 49th year, is one of the world’s most exquisite ensembles. The Company has performed Mr. Taylor’s works in over 60 countries and more than 450 cities. It has represented the United States at arts festivals in more than 40 countries and has toured extensively under the aegis of the U.S. Department of State.
In June 1999 the Company launched a two-year Cultural Capitals of the World Tour, which took it to Santiago, Cologne, Auckland, Macau, Jakarta, Paris, Frankfurt, Kingston, Santo Domingo, Stockholm, Bergen, Lyon, London, Rome, Montreal, Beijing and Shanghai, among other cities. The engagement in Chile was named the Best International Dance Event of 1999 by the country’s Art Critic’s Circle.
In the summer of 2001 the Company toured in The People’s Republic of China and performed in six cities, four of which had never seen American modern dance before. In the spring of 2003 the Company mounted a four-week, seven-city tour of the United Kingdom.
While continuing to garner international acclaim, the Paul Taylor Dance Company performs more than half of each touring season in cities throughout the United States. Boston and Durham host annual engagements during which audiences have the opportunity to see Mr. Taylor’s newest works.
The Company also presents annual two-week seasons at City Center in New York and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. Beginning with its first television appearance for the Dance in America series in 1978, the Company has appeared on PBS in eight different programs, including the 1991 Emmy Award-winning Speaking in Tongues. More recently, the Company worked with WNET/New York to create a new Dance in America special, The Wrecker’s Ball, which includes Company B, Funny Papers, and A Field of Grass. Broadcast nationally on PBS, The Wrecker’s Ball was nominated for an Emmy Award in 1997.
In 1999 the PBS American Masters series aired Dancemaker, the Academy Award nominated documentary about Paul Taylor and his Company. Dancemaker, The Wrecker’s Ball, Speaking in Tongues, and Esplanade/Runes are all available on home video.
