Lauren Lovette is appointed the first Resident Choreographer of the Paul Taylor Dance Company.
The Company invests in an expanded New York City presence, performing at City Center, 92Y, The Joyce, Guggenheim Museum, and Lincoln Center – all in one year. The Company also reconstructs Kurt Jooss’ The Green Table in honor of its 90th Anniversary.
The Company presents five world premieres: Lauren Lovette’s Pentimento and SOLITAIRE, Michelle Manzanales’ Hope is the Thing with Feathers, Peter Chu’s A Call for Softer Landings, and Amy Hall Garner’s Somewhere in the Middle.
The Foundation participates in two major retrospectives on artist Alex Katz at Colby College and the Guggenheim Museum by lending rare archival materials for display and research.
The Company’s return to Lincoln Center sees the launch of the Moving Music series, celebrating the Company’s partnership with Orchestra of St. Luke’s, with special guests including pianist Conrad Tao and actress Vanessa Williams.
