Taylor 2 Festival (NYC)

News Story

Taylor 2 has travelled from Alaska to Zimbabwe and back. And on April 24–26, they return to the Schimmel as part of the Pace Presents season.

From Ahmedabad to Alaska, Mozambique to Montana, Bangalore to Boston, Taylor 2 has performed in nearly 400 cities to date, with international tours in Africa and India, as well as a domestic tour that took the troupe to 46 of the 50 states.

Paul Taylor’s renowned Taylor 2 Company, composed of six professionals with a particular gift for his style, are coming back to the Schimmel for three shows on Thursday, April 24–Saturday, April 26 at 7:30 p.m.

One of the pioneers of modern dance, Taylor will have three works presented in the program: "AIRS" with music by George Frideric Handel, "ESPLANADE," with music by Johann Sebastian Bach, and "THE UNCOMMITTED" with music by Arvo Pärt. See what The New York Times  has called “a kind of a miracle.”

Live music for these performances is the result of a special collaboration with the distinguished American Virtuosi, an ensemble of period and modern instruments, conducted by Kenneth Hamrick, Artistic Director.

Now’s your chance to see Taylor 2 and hear American Virtuosi. This is the way Taylor's dances were meant to be experienced!
