Notes: “It isn’t your everyday choreographer who will unabashedly turn to self-parody but Paul Taylor plunges straight into such waters in his zany and newest work, Ab Ovo Usque ad Mala… Parody works best when it works on several levels, as Mr. Taylor knows. He is a master of the movement joke – making movement funny on its own terms. And then he can also extend it into a literary or dance allusion.” – Anna Kisselgoff, The New York Times
