Paul Taylor’s Taylor 2 is the six-member company that brings Paul Taylor’s dances to venues of any size with all the artistry of the world renowned choreographer’s work – representing the wide range of athleticism, humor and emotion found in his dances.
Paul Taylor established Taylor 2 to ensure that his works could be seen by audiences all over the world, unhindered by economic or technical limitations. Mr. Taylor looked back to the 1954 origins of the Paul Taylor Dance Company for the structure of his new company: six professionals with a particular gift for his style who perform his work throughout the world.
Orcas Center is indeed one such small isolated community that would otherwise be unable to see Paul Taylor’s work. We are eager to have Taylor 2 grace our stage again and share the work of dancemaker Paul Taylor, one of the seminal artists of the 20th and 21st Centuries, who continues to shape the homegrown American art of modern dance that he has helped define since he became a professional dancer and pioneering choreographer in 1954.
The Taylor 2 Dance Company will hold a master class for advanced dancers from 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm on the night of the performance included with ticket.
“It’s small, travels light, and packs some of the best modern dance around.”
– Valerie Sudol, The Sunday Star Ledger
“Taylor 2 is a kind of a miracle… All of the dancers are considerable talents [who] unite fearlessness
with skill.” — Gia Kourlas, New York Times
