Ticketing Information

Danced with unbridled joy and energy, Mercuric Tidings showcases young individuals cavorting with the kinetic propensities of young godlets. Taylor’s choreography captures the sheer pleasure and poetry of movement, creating a dynamic and exuberant dance piece.

Larry Keigwin’s new work for the Taylor Company Drum Circle is an exhilarating percussive journey through different styles of dance. Set to original music by William Contanzaro, this thrilling performance will feature Contanzaro’s band CHAIN live on stage, adding a dynamic and immersive dimension to the choreography. Following the immense success of Rush Hour, Larry Keigwin’s artistic prowess once again shines through Taylor dancers.

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.
