PAUL TAYLOR

ESPLANADE, the most miraculous of dances, makes a lyric flow out of one expressive contrast after another. Stillness and movement, running and walking, joy and anguish, rushing forward and looking back, jumping high and falling splat: Your heart is brim-full while you watch.” — Alastair Macaulay

PAUL TAYLOR DANCE COMPANY, one of the great American troupes, arrives at the Wallis this weekend for three performances. And for dancers, there’s a Master Class on Saturday afternoon.

In addition to ESPLANADE, the company will perform SYZYGY, and THE WORD.
