PREVIEW: Paul Taylor: Celebrate the Dancemaker (UMS Digital Presentation)

If you were looking forward to Paul Taylor Dance Company’s 2020/21 UMS season performance before it was cancelled, join in for the digital presentation of Paul Taylor: Celebrate the Dancemaker!

This special presentation will feature University of Michigan dance historian and educator Angela Kane and Paul Taylor Dance Company Artistic Director Michael Novak, as well as footage of Paul Taylor repertoire including Aureole (1962), Scudorama (1963), the documentary film Dancemaker (1998), and a full viewing of Taylor’s 2002 work Promethean Fire. Promethean Fire is “arguably one of his greatest artistic achievements created in the wake of 9/11, proclaiming that even after a cataclysmic event, the human spirit finds renewal and emerges triumphant.”

The event will stream free on demand beginning Friday, September 11 at 7:30 pm, and will be available until September 21 at 7:30 pm. A live chat with Angela Kane and Michael Novak will also take place on September 21 at 7:30 pm on Facebook.
