Storyline

A look at Paul Taylor (1930- ) and his dance company over several months in 1997. Preparation of Taylor's piece, "Piazzolla Caldera," from conception and rehearsals to opening night at City Center, frames the film. The troupe's trip to India falls in the middle. Included are black and white footage of rehearsals, and, in color, interviews with Taylor, his dancers, dance critics and scholars, and those who manage the business side. There is also footage of a younger Taylor dancing and film of the troupe performing a dozen Taylor pieces. His genius, his roots, his method of working with dancers, and his sometimes difficult nature draw the attention of those who comment. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

An Important Movie For The Dancing Student
17 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

Suffice to say a great movie, entertaining and compelling. However, any student of dance should always keep keep this in the back pocket if he or she is thinking of making dancing a profession. A really hard life this is, the dancer.
