Patrick Corbin and Dancers Dancespace Project
By Hilary Ostlere for The Financial Times

Patrick Corbin, a veteran of the Paul Taylor Company at 38, has taken time out to develop his own choreography which he's presenting at the Dancespace Project at St Marks Church, a space devoted to nascent dance companies. A dynamic performer, he had a career in classical ballet before joining Taylor 14 years ago. Today he's deservedly recognised as one of its premier dancers.

Rumour, apparently unfounded, has it that Corbin might leave the Taylor company. While new choreographers have to start somewhere, he has something to learn about editing his choreography which can be facile but repetitive, before pursuing the career his mentor has mastered so successfully.

Patrick Corbin's 'Bathing Jeff, Part I' Offers a Tribute That's Loving, but Not Sentimental
by JENNIFER DUNNING for the New York Times

Mr. Corbin's testimony is well timed, in this 25th-anniversary year of the first evidence of AIDS and in Gay Pride Month. But it is a dance that may endure, an unsentimentally loving look at a friend and a community, and a harrowingly direct account of the ravages of AIDS.

Sitting at the side of the stage, Mr. Corbin reads from his journals of the time as his 12-member company, led by Elizabeth Dement, Monica Gillette and Nic Ceynowa, moves through what could be a large room in a hospital or a home, lost in time and softly lighted space. A door becomes a bed around which the dancers gather.
