Paul Taylor, one of my all-time favorite choreographers, brings his company to McCarter tonight. As Valerie Sudol writes, “He is entirely capable of building a whole new universe from steps and gestures, each wrested from his fertile imagination.”
As I write this, a former Princeton Ballet School student, Sean Mahoney, is giving a master class at the PBS studios. Tonight he will perform in the Taylor classic, Mercuric Tidings. Also on the program are two new works, The Uncommitted (music by Arvo Part), and Gossamer Gallants (music by Smetana). A few tickets remain.
Tango dancing infuses the Mercer Dance Ensemble with some Argentine flavor in its concerts set for Saturday, May 12 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, May 13, at 2 p.m.
PBS hosts an in-house studio concert on Saturday, June 2. According to Mary Pat Robertson, it will feature work by Princeton Ballet School/American Repertory Ballet faculty, dancers and staff, including work by Susan Tenney, Alexis Branagan, David Sadowsky, Janell Byrne and others.
