Paul Taylor's Dust

Paul Taylor's Dust

The Paul Taylor 2 Dance Company returns to the Adelphi University Performing Arts Center to showcase the athleticism, humor and range of emotions found in Paul Taylor’s work. The company will perform on Saturday, February 3 at 8:00 p.m. in the Dance Theatre in the Adelphi Performing Arts Center (PAC), 1 South Ave, Garden City, New York.

This program will feature the comedic hit Funny Papers, The Uncommitted and the Paul Taylor masterwork Airs, all restaged for this talented company of six dancers in our intimate Dance Theatre.

Paul Taylor established the Paul Taylor 2 Dance Company in 1993 to ensure that his works could be seen by audiences all over the world, unhindered by economic or technical limitations. Working with longtime colleague Linda Hodes, he modeled Taylor 2 after the original six-member company he established in 1954. Taylor 2 is able to perform in smaller venues with more modest budgets than the larger Paul Taylor Dance Company without sacrificing any of the artistry that characterizes a Taylor performance.

Paul Taylor, one of the most accomplished artists this nation has ever produced, continues to shape America’s indigenous art of modern dance as he has since becoming a professional dancer and pioneering choreographer in 1954. Having performed with Martha Graham’s company for several years, Mr. Taylor uniquely bridges the legendary founders of modern dance – Isadora Duncan, Ruth St. Denis, Ted Shawn, Doris Humphrey and Ms. Graham – and the dance makers of the 21st Century. Through his new initiative at Lincoln Center – Paul Taylor’s American Modern Dance – he is presenting great modern works of the past and outstanding works by today’s leading choreographers alongside his own vast and growing repertoire. And he is commissioning the next generation of dance makers to work with his renowned Company, thereby helping to ensure the future of the art form.

The Adelphi PAC is one of Long Island’s premier cultural arts venues for entertainment of all kinds. Tickets are currently on sale for $40 with discounts available to seniors, students and alumni.
