If coming from NJ, take NJ transit to NY Penn station (33rd st). Then just walk up one block on 7th Ave and jump on the #1 Subway (Van Cortland Ave/242 St) and it takes you straight to Lincoln Center (66th St) which was a 13 min ride. $2.75

Description

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.
