THE LEAST FLYCATCHER

Opus Number: 5
Music: Robert Rauschenberg (commissioned score)
Costumes: Robert Rauschenberg
Date First Performed: May 6, 1956

Notes: “The Least Flycatcher, to piano rag music of Stravinsky, never stops, and it’s a bright delicate piece full of side-stepping, prancing, arms winding or flying, the head cocked at that precisely individual angle, leg extensions like knife slicing through paper. Well, you know, Taylor dances like an angel, an angel with the frame of a football player and the deft thrust of a thoroughbred taking a hurdle. – Jill Johnston, The Village Voice
