Paul Taylor has also been piecing together, over and over since the 1950s, intricate dances that reveal splendid portraits of society. Now in his early 80s, he is the last living representative of the generation that pioneered American modern dance, though the thought hardly seems to have crossed his mind. Last spring marked the 60th anniversary of the Paul Taylor Dance Company, and over the years Taylor has given only glimpses into his creative process. For his 133rd dance, 'Three Dubious Memories,' the audience is allowed into his studio and it's documented in this new film.


The documentary Paul Taylor: Creative Domain begins with Taylor dancing in his youth, describing the nature of dance: "You learn to live day to day, hour to hour." Then we progress to current times through the lens of award-winning cinematographer Tom Hurwitz, witnessing Taylor's verbal and non-verbal communication with his dancers.

The film opens Sept. 11 at Film Society of Lincoln Center with a national release to follow. Watch the trailer below:
