“In a post 9/11 world, many artists are trying to come to terms with the human tragedy and the subsequent changes that have occurred in our Western world. Capturing the Zeitgeist of the early 21st Century is a challenging task. After nearly half a century of choreographing, Paul Taylor rises to the challenge with such ease, it is awe inspiring. He has led his company into the millennium, presenting world class dance that distinctly touches the pulse of time…. Taylor’s work not only communicates on an intellectual level, it touches the human soul. In a world that is struggling to find its feet, the emotional undercurrent of fear mixed with optimism unites most of the international community. Connecting with this emotion, Taylor is speaking the language of our time.”
