"And now all my younger competition is breaking my neck"! Is he referring to Mark MOrris, or maybe even his own former dancer David Parsons?!

One more:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>Paul Taylor Dance Company dazzles with diversity</B><P>Rachel Howard, SF Examiner<P> You'd have expected palpable excitement for the return of the Paul Taylor Dance Company Thursday night, and for good reason. Everyone, but just everyone, loves Taylor's dances, and what with his recent 70th birthday, tributes at Jacob's Pillow and the American Dance Festivals and Matthew Diamond's spectacular "Dancemaker" documentary, his canonization is nearly complete, his sage position in the dance world unassailable.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://63.78.169.150/style/default.jsp?story=X0323TAYLO1" TARGET=_blank><B>More</B></A>

I am ecstatic that Taylor is doing "Big Bertha". Although it's DEFINETLY not a "feel good" piece, it's one of this older works, shows the dark side of Taylor, and really gives his dancers some meaty dramatic moments. If any of our members or moderators sees this work (and is not already writing a review)on tour, can you tell us your impressions?

An article from NYC:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>Paul Taylor Dance Company In "Dandelion Wine"</B><P>BackStage.com<P>If you are wondering why Paul Taylor has become just about America's favorite modern dance choreographer, you need go no further than the program seen on March 3 at City Center, in which his "Dandelion Wine" (a New York premiere), "Eventide," and "Oh, You Kid!" were seen.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><BR>[This message has been edited to remove dead link.]<p>[This message has been edited by Admin (edited April 05, 2002).]

VERY INTERESTING.It appears, from the Sacramento Bee, that PT has changed "BIg Bertha". As far as I can remember, the "old" Big Bertha was about a FAMILY, mother father daughter. Now, it appears to involve siblings or maybe just friends...hmmmm.Of course, these things are always open to interpretation, and I dont' think PT ever came out and said "this is what this is about".....a dark and disturbing piece, either way.<P><p>[This message has been edited by trina (edited March 25, 2001).]

One more review from the SF Bay Area, this one not so complimentary:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>Taylor Treading Water <BR>Latest works visit familiar ground</B><P>Allan Ulrich, SF Chronicle<P>If choreographic genius resides in constant reinvention, then Paul Taylor has slipped a bit from the pantheon in his two most recent works. Both headed Friday evening's bill, the third program of the Paul Taylor Dance Company's two-week visit to Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/chronicle/archive/2001/03/26/DD125542.DTL" TARGET=_blank><B>More</B></A>

I am likewise ECSTATIC that they're doing "Sunset" and "Last Look"...two very strong, older works. Although "Sunset" without David Parsons and Chris Gillis in the male duet is difficult to visualize.

Another review from the Examiner:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>Top man Taylor makes his company jump</B><P>Rachel Howard, SF Examiner<P> Paul Taylor would have no cause for shame if, 50 years on in his exalted choreography career, he turned out just one masterpiece every decade. As it happens he's managed to make several more, but the final Paul Taylor Dance Company program, which opened Friday night at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, gives us just one: 1991's "Company B."<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://63.78.169.150/ex_files/default.jsp?story=X0326TAYLOR1" TARGET=_blank><B>More</B></A>
