PAUL TAYLOR DANCE COMPANY
AMERICAN DANCE FESTIVAL AT DPAC
Closing out ADF's Durham season is one of modern dance’s most beloved companies. Paul Taylor Dance Company will perform Promethean Fire (2002). Set to three keyboard works by Bach as richly orchestrated by Stokowski, Promethean Fire examines a kaleidoscope of emotional colors in the human condition. All 16 Taylor dancers, costumed in black, weave in and out of intricate patterns that mirror the way varied emotions weave themselves through life. A central duet depicts conflict and resolution following a cataclysmic event. But if destruction has been at the root of this dance, renewal of the spirit is its overriding message. Additional classic Taylor repertory will round out the program.
