Notes: “[Taylor’s domain was one] that juxtaposes light and dark, winging lyricism and plunges into awkwardness, refinement and crudity, complexity and simplicity, comedy and mystery […] The dancers in Insects and Heroes included one disguised in a spiny black outfit – clearly an insect, but possibly heroic.” – Deborah Jowitt, Dance Beat
