Paul Taylor Dance at OSL Bach Festival

Throwback to the Paul Taylor Dance Company performing at the Orchestra of St. Luke’s Bach Festival on June 8, 2019.

I was traveling for two weeks, and so could attend only one performance out of three weeks of programming.

The festival marked the start of retirement of a generation of beloved Paul Taylor dancers, including Michael Trusnovec and Laura Halzack, as well as four more expected departures later this year.

Tonight’s show featured Brandenburgs, Rewilding, and Cascade. As usual, the Paul Tayler dancers filled the stage with artistry and energy. If anything, the stage at the Manhattan School of Music seemed barely large enough for the exuberance of Paul Taylor choreographies.
