Moving Music – Icons: Taylor, Glass, Jooss
Part of: Paul Taylor Dance Company
A once-in-a-lifetime program that brings together three icons who transformed the landscape of dance and music: Paul Taylor, Philip Glass, and Kurt Jooss. Arden Court, one of Taylor’s exuberant, beloved dances set to baroque music, looks at supportive, competitive and flirtatious relationships. The Suite from The Hours features a haunting Oscar-nominated original score by iconic American composer Philip Glass. The Green Table, created in the 1930s between world wars, is the most iconic and celebrated anti-war dance of all time.
