The legendary Paul Taylor Dance Company was last in Denver in 1991. Their return will feature the stunning new work “Brief Encounters” set to Debussy’s “Children’s Corner,” the poetic and virtuosic “Beloved Renegade” set to Poulenc’s

“Gloria,” and one of the great Baroque pieces from earlier in Taylor’s long and storied career.

“Paul Taylor Dance Company is perhaps the most beloved and respected modern dance company in the world, famous for Mr. Taylor’s wit, its sunny expansiveness, its all-American optimism and its occasional forays into darkness and gloom.” – Dallas Morning News
