The Paul Taylor Dance company will perform American Dreamer on Tuesday, January 27, at 7:30 pm.
"Another nod to Kentucky will come in the form of the Paul Taylor Dance Company in January 2015. This troupe, Taylor’s primary company, celebrates its 60th season this year, and their Newlin Hall performance will feature the Kentucky premiere of American Dreamer, a brand new work set to the music of Kentucky’s own Stephen Foster. A direct disciple of the Martha Graham dance lineage, choreographer Paul Taylor is often called the greatest living pioneer of American modern dance, whose works take audiences on a new journey every time. With almost a dozen PBS televisions specials, films and even an Academy Award, Taylor’s work is accessible, powerful and entertaining."
