Dancemaker Paul Taylor, one of the seminal artists of the 20th and 21st centuries, continues to shape the homegrown American art of modern dance that he has helped define since becoming a professional dancer and pioneering choreographer in 1954. Newman Center Presents has co-commissioned a new work by Taylor that will have its world premiere at these performances.
