7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
During the more than 60 years that choreographer Paul Taylor has been reinventing the roles of music, movement, and theme in dance, he has offered only glimpses into his creative process. The documentary film Creative Domain offers a rare, up-close and in-depth look at Taylor in action.
Director Kate Geis takes us into the studio, where the dance Three Dubious Memories is taking shape over a number of weeks. Through the lens of award-winning cinematographer Tom Hurwitz, we see Taylor’s non-verbal communication with his dancers; between the guarded and unguarded moments we see him with new eyes and new understanding.
The film ends with a performance of the finished piece, but on December 1, instead of showing the filmed version, the screen will rise to reveal the Paul Taylor Dance Company, who will perform Three Dubious Memories live.
A Q&A will follow the performance.
