Movie Tuesdays – Paul Taylor Creative Domain

Tuesday, August 9 – 8:30 pm

Paul Taylor Creative Domain (2014, 86 min.)

Among the most acclaimed choreographers in American history, Paul Taylor has been reinventing the roles of music, movement and theme in dance for nearly 60 years. In that time he has offered only glimpses into his creative process. Creative Domain is a rare in-depth documentation of how he creates a single dance. Through the lens of award-winning cinematographer Tom Hurwitz, we see Paul’s non-verbal communication with his dancers. Below the surface of this dance, and the many works that came before, is Paul’s power of acute observation, revealing a side to his choreography that is strangely prophetic. The dominant voice is Paul’s, between the guarded and unguarded moments we see him with new eyes, and new understanding. The Executive Producer, Robert Aberlin, will introduce the film and answer questions after the screening at PS21.
