“The American spirit soars whenever Taylor’s dancers dance.” – San Francisco Chronicle

The Paul Taylor Dance Company is one of the world’s most highly respected and sought-after ensembles. The company has traveled the globe many times over and will bring its ever-burgeoning repertoire to AUPAC with a program of modern dance including the high energy of Syzygy, where dancers hurtle across the stage like celestial bodies orbiting and eclipsing one another, and the beautiful Brandenburgs, celebrating the good things in life. The program concludes with the powerful Sunset, a heart-wrenching look at soldiers and the girls they meet who mourn their passing—which, according to The New York Times, first marked Paul Taylor as “one of the great war poets.” This performance is presented as part of the Changing Nature of War and Peace—Adelphi’s yearlong, campuswide initiative.
