Paul Taylor Dance Company
Presented by DANCECleveland and Playhouse Square, Cleveland
Ohio Theatre, Playhouse Square
The classic modern dance favorite, Paul Taylor Dance Company returns to Cleveland to perform some of the company’s most beloved favorites! Choreographer Paul Taylor is the last living member of the pantheon that created America’s indigenous art of modern dance. At an age when most artists’ best work is behind them, Mr. Taylor continues to win public and critical acclaim for the vibrancy, relevance and power of his creations. Paul Taylor’s dances are renowned for their movement invention, athleticism, cultural commentary, and intricate musicality. Best known for his ability to capture musicality in motion, for many people it is impossible to hear certain orchestral works and not think of his dances. He has set works to an eclectic mix that includes scores from both classical and modern composers.

BOOMERANG

Oberlin – November 12, 7 PMRepercussion_Davis_hands

BOOMERANG presents Repercussion with Deerhoof drummer Greg Saunier at Oberlin College.

Tickets only $5 with link below!

BOOMERANG’s Repercussion combines the daring and vulnerable artistry of dancers Matty Davis and Adrian Galvin with poetically-nuanced choreography by Kora Radella. Greg Saunier’s physically-charged, expressive percussion sets the tone and further embodies the work’s fearlessly physical exploration of ‘active forgetting,’ based on new writing by MacArthur awardee and cultural critic Lewis Hyde.

“Brilliant. Exceptionally strong work. BOOMERANG made me listen.”
~ Theater director Robert Wilson
