The incomparable Paul Taylor Dance Company returns to Houston for one night only with a program that includes Airs, Esplanade and Sunset, and will feature live music performed by Houston’s own Mercury! The last living member of the legends that created American modern dance, Paul Taylor continues to win acclaim for the vibrancy, relevance and power of his recent dances, as well as his classics. As prolific as always, he observes life’s complexities and tackles society’s thorniest issues. For more than 50 years he has made some of the most romantic, athletic and humorous dances ever put on a stage. While he may propel his dancers through space for the sheer beauty of it, he more frequently uses them to illuminate such profound issues as war, piety, spirituality, sexuality, morality and mortality. Mercury, the orchestra redefined, serves the community by celebrating the power of music, Baroque and beyond, teaching, sharing and performing with passion, intimacy and excellence.
