The Paul Taylor Dance Company returns to the David H. Koch Theater for its 2013 New York Season from March 5th through the 24th following a record-shattering inaugural Season at Lincoln Center in 2012. The Season celebrates Paul Taylor’s masterworks spanning seven decades, from the 1950s through today.
It will feature the New York premiere of To Make Crops Grow, set to music by Ferde Grofé, and the World Premiere of Perpetual Dawn, Taylor’s 138th dance; the revival of Le Sacre du Printemps (The Rehearsal) 100 years after the premiere of the original Sacre; and three landmark celebrations – the 50th anniversary of Scudorama, and the 25th anniversaries of the exuberant Brandenburgs and Emmy Award- winning Speaking in Tongues.
The magnificent result of one of the great artistic “collaborations” in history, every program this Season will feature one of the dance maker’s six masterworks set to music by Johann Sebastian Bach; Junction, Brandenburgs, Esplanade, Musical Offering, Cascade and Promethean Fire.
Following opening night, the Company’s performances are Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7pm, Fridays at 8pm, Saturdays at 3pm and 8pm, and Sundays at 3pm. Ticket prices for all performances except March 6 are $10, $30, $55, $80, $110 and $160 (visit www.ptdc.org/tickets). Premium $160 seats include an invitation to the Patrons Lounge.
