Paul Taylor – Cascade and Brief Encounters (Excerpts)

Precision of movement yet with grace and ease best describes this brief excerpt from this dress rehearsal of Cascade. I especially enjoyed the way the choreography, set to Bach, reflected the style of the music.

In the except from Brief Encounters men and women dressed in black underwear dance to music by Debussy. They move as if nymphs and their male counterparts. It starts out light and lively then toward the end evolves into a more serious tone making you wonder where this piece will indeed end up.

A documentary DVD that not only portrays the genius of Paul Taylor but also the collaboration of his company’s dancers in bringing their audiences innovative and creative modern dance.  It also gives us insight into the difficulties that dance companies face as they struggle to survive.
