White Bird remembers Paul Taylor
On Wednesday, August 29, 2018, the world lost one of the most iconic modern dance choreographers, Paul Taylor (July 29, 1930 – August 29, 2018).
“These are not merely pretty but downright beautiful moments in an increasingly dark world. And as Mr. Taylor tried to teach us over and over again, you can’t have the light without the dark. So many choreographers feel a need to please. He never did. His dances were true.” NY Times
It is with great sadness that White Bird mourns the loss of Paul Taylor, modern dance visionary and friend of White Bird.
21 years ago, White Bird began with none other than the Paul Taylor Dance Company, presented for one night in the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall. His riveting passion for movement and choreographic genius has played a key role in White Bird’s evolution over the years. It is with great respect that we honor Mr. Taylor today. His vision lives on through the dance!
Looking forward, we are excited for the next chapter for the company, led by recently appointed (by Mr.Taylor himself) Artistic Director Michael Novak. In July 2018, following the PTADC’s performance at Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center in the Berkshires, White Bird Co-Founders Paul and Walter had the honor of interviewing Mr. Novak in his first public appearance as the Artistic Director designate. We wish Mr. Novak and the company the best of luck as they move forward with carrying on the legacy of Mr. Taylor.
