Tobi Tobias writes in NY Mag:

Quote:
In his company's regular springtime run at the City Center, Taylor introduced the local audience to his latest venture on this terrain. Antique Valentine, set to bits of classical music rendered on music boxes, player piano, and mechanical organ, turns the dancers into wind-up dolls.

Do we need a good reason, let alone three?

A review from the Chronicle.

Quote:
Spirited dance alfresco
Taylor masterworks at Yerba Buena

Octavio Roca, Chronicle Dance Critic

The dance season began early, and it was quite a start: an outdoor performance by the Paul Taylor Dance Company at Yerba Buena Gardens on Sunday afternoon. Here was American dance at its most exuberant.

The free program was a trilogy of Taylor masterworks from three decades. "Dandelion Wine," choreographed in 2000 to Pietro Locatelli's Concerto No. 2 in C Minor, again emerged as a feast of miracles. Not least among these was Richard Chen See, back in form after a series of injuries.

And from the Examiner (first piece in the article).

Quote:
Dance for every season
BY RACHEL HOWARD
Examiner Dance Critic

The program was made up of older favorites: "Cloven Kingdom," Taylor's bleak yet playful 1976 mockery of human evolution, in which tuxedoed men stamp like wild boars; and 1981's bucolic "Arden Court," one of Taylor's classic angelic visions ("Airs" is another) to the baroque music of William Boyce.

Did any of the SF contingent see this performance? I actually set out to see it, but where I live (on the edge of the sun belt), it was foggy, cold and very windy, and my bad knee was aching by the time I got to the bus stop, and I figured I'd be miserable sitting in the cold for a couple of hours. So I went back home and, wouldn't you know, the sun came out downtown!

Yes, I was there :) , the weather was fine (the wind even picked up as if on cue to ventilate the dancers in tuxedoes for "Cloven") and the dancers were lovely. Also the setting was stunning, with the rock face of the waterfall in the background. It was a treat.

In the Boston Herald:

Quote:
Choreographer fired up over latest work

by Vicki Sanders

Clues to the genius of choreographer Paul Taylor are embedded in the stacks of books and publications that clutter his library, in the music collection that embraces everything from Bach to Depression-era tunes, and in his quirky miniature collages of bugs and found objects, which hang on the walls of his Long Island home.

From the Boston Globe:

Taylor proves a master of surprise

By Karen Campbell, Globe Correspondent, 10/26/2001

Quote:
A pregnant woman in tattered clothes dances a feisty, high-kicking solo to the Depression-era tune ''Sittin' on a Rubbish Can,'' and a man in a ratty top hat and dingy underwear dances an insouciant little soft shoe. Though Paul Taylor has been making dances for almost half a century, the master choreographer can still conjure characters that manage to surprise, to test the heart and tease the eye in unexpected ways. His trademark dance vocabulary may remain basically the same, but the legendary dance-maker seems to constantly reinvent the contexts, forms, and structures that can give his dances stunning emotional impact and striking visual appeal.
