PAUL TAYLOR DANCE COMPANY | David H Koch Theater | Lincoln Center | NYC

My new dance, Half Life will premiere as part of the Paul Taylor American Dance Company’s season on March 10th, at Lincoln Center. 

The dance is set to a phenomenal score by Julia Wolfe, Lighting Design by James Ingalls and Costume Design by Liz Prince.The dance follows the Wolfe score closely in its structure, as I am constantly changing visuals to match the aural drive of the score. And the Taylor dancers have been amazing to work with! Hope you can find time to see it. 


Paul Taylor American Dance Company and Taylor Company Commissions Through a new initiative at Lincoln Center – Paul Taylor American Modern Dance – great modern works of the past and outstanding works by today’s leading choreographers are presented alongside Mr. Taylor’s own vast and growing repertoire. And Taylor Company Commissions enables the next generation of dance makers to work with the Paul Taylor Dance Company, thereby helping to ensure the future of the art form. As an integral part of Mr. Taylor’s vision, these dances are accompanied at Lincoln Center by live music whenever so intended by the choreographer.

Inspired by the complex, haunting imagery of Billy Collins’s poetry, Doug’s new work unfolds in 7 interwoven narratives mapping an array of themes: love, solitude, separation, forgiveness, aging. Performed by a multi-generational cast of 16 artists, it delves deep into our memories, creating intimate portraits of ordinary lives.
