RWB Presents Paul Taylor Dance Company
November 13, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 7:30 pm, happening 2 times
The world-renowned Paul Taylor Dance Company makes its Winnipeg debut with three powerful works. Hailed as the world’s most important living choreographer, Paul Taylor’s meticulous choreography is inspired by influential themes in modern society – while using his signature youthful, light-hearted and optimistic approach on these themes and exploring the beauty of movement.
Set to Bach violin concertos and acclaimed as “a classic of American Dance” by The New Yorker upon its premiere 40 years ago, Esplanade displays the vitality of youth, the anguish of a dysfunctional family and the romantic connection between lovers. Company B juxtaposes the exuberance of Americans post-Depression, as heard in the pop songs of the Andrews Sisters, with the tragedy of men who never returned from World War II. Piazzolla Caldera ignites the stage with the fiery passions of tango set to the music of Astor Piazzolla and Jerzy Peterburshsky. Clement Crisp of the Financial Times of London calls Piazzolla Caldera “one of Taylor’s most astonishing creations.”
