The renowned Paul Taylor Dance Company returns to Damrosch Park to perform one of its signature pieces, Company B, a pacifist masterpiece that questions some of the American myths that emerged out of times of war. Originally set to nine songs performed by the Andrews Sisters, tonight’s performance will feature live music by the charismatic New York vocal trio Duchess. The group opens the evening with special guest, rising South African jazz singer Vuyo Sotashe. Taylor’s Airs, another celebrated classic of his repertoire with music by Handel, rounds out this sparkling evening of song and dance.
“One of the most exciting, innovative, and delightful dance companies in the entire world.”– New York Times
