Paul Taylor is hailed as one of the world's most important
living choreographers and is bringing his troupe to Wilmington
in celebration of the company's 60th anniversary. The Paul
Taylor Dance Company is one of the earliest touring companies in
American dance. Today, Taylor continues to win acclaim for the
vibrancy, relevance and power of both his recent dances and his
classic works. His meticulously choreographed dances draw from
influential moments in American cultural history, putting his
characteristic humorous and lighthearted spin on these themes.
His appearances are funded in part by a grant from South Arts in
partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and the
North Carolina Arts Council. Visit ptdc.org to learn more.
