Program 1: Junction/all at once (Tanowitz)/Promethean Fire

Ticketing Information

MSM Box Office: 917.493.4428

One of Taylor’s earliest works, Junction showcases the abstract side of Mr. Taylor’s work set to Bach’s famous Solo Suites for Cello, while Promethean Fire examines the emotional resilience of the human spirit, using stunning patterns of movement that echo Leopold Stokowski’s orchestration of Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor.  Taylor’s beloved dances surround the world premiere of all at once by modern choreographer Pam Tanowitz – known for her sophisticated movement invention and theatricality.

Runtime: 86 minutes


One hour prior to the performance, join us for a lively discussion on the works featured on the program at Manhattan School of Music’s Greenfield Hall.

Paul Taylor’s biographer Suzanne Carbonneau will be joined by company dancer Parisa Khobdeh, who will share her insights into Promethean Fire, one of Taylor’s most beloved dances, as well as his mid-century Junction. They will also discuss the new work by guest choreographer Pam Tanowitz, all at once.
