Paul Taylor Gala Performance

I’m super excited about the start of the Paul Taylor season. Go see this amazing company at the Lincoln Center until November 17th!!!

Tonight’s gala performance features guest artists, Michael Trusnovec and Misty Copeland, and guest choreography by Kyle Abraham.

Kyle Abraham’s “Only the Lonely” started out with various humorous scenes. Michael Trusnovec danced to George Balanchine’s “Episodes”. But my favorite of the night goes to Paul Taylor’s own “Black Tuesday” where Misty Copeland joined the company members for a collection of tales and memories from the Great Depression. I just love how Paul Taylor tells powerful and impactful human stories through movements.

Dearest Home

Catch “Dearest Home” by Abraham.In.Motion this week at the Kitchen! Merde Connie Shiau.

New York Times describes the piece as Kyle Abraham’s most personal work to date reflecting on love, longing, and loss. Sounds incredible! I’m still traveling and so sadly will miss the entire run through July 2. Hope some of you can make it. Let me know how it goes!
