Ticketing Information

Dreamachine delves into humankind’s fascination with machines and their inventors. “Dreamachine is my playground,” says Lovette, a space where creativity knows no bounds and imagination launches into its own universe. Set to Michael Daugherty’s mesmerizing percussion suit, with set & costumes by Santo Loquasto and lighting by Jennifer Tipton, this triptych of fantastical worlds fits beautifully in the Taylor universe.

Set to the music of Ralph Vaughan Williams, Taylor’s choreography for Eventide reaches sublime heights in this paean to remembered love. Couples embrace an unknown future while looking back, blending bittersweetness with optimism and upliftment.

Inspired by the simple act of a girl running to catch a bus, Paul Taylor created Esplanade in 1975, a masterpiece based on pedestrian movement. Set to J.S. Bach’s music, the dance celebrates ordinary movements like standing, walking, running, sliding, and falling. By using these “found movements,” Taylor showcases the beauty and expressive power of everyday actions, making the audience appreciate the grace in the seemingly mundane.
