Michael Novak and the Paul Taylor Dancers
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
For 64 years dance-maker Paul Taylor created radical, funny, horrific, and beautiful dances. Before his death in 2018 he chose his successor, Michael Novak, who writes, “The year 1962 marks a significant moment in Paul’s history; his early explorations in Modernism shifted radically.”
This program is curated to present two dances that premiered four months apart in 1962 and represent this pivotal time in art and dance. Tracer, the 12th and final collaboration with Robert Rauschenberg, is an austere and experimental piece, with graphic costumes. Aureole, to Handel’s music, is a graceful, joyful, life-affirming work.
Venue: The National Arts Club
15 Gramercy Park S
