Led by Paul Taylor, the reigning master of modern dance, this magnificent troupe makes spirits soar. The San Francisco Examiner proclaimed, "Paul Taylor is without question the greatest living American choreographer." His works are known for their emotional depth, dazzling physicality, social reverence, humor, superb musicality, and a rare sense of beauty. His dancers are brilliant and his choreography offers unending surprises. "One of the most exciting, innovative and delightful dance companies in the entire world," says The New York Times. Funded in part by the Expeditions program of the New England Foundation for the Arts, made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts Regional Touring Program and the American Masterpieces initiative, with additional support from the six New England state arts agencies.
