The Paul Taylor Dance Company’s 2023 Season includes fourteen dances by five choreographers—Ulysses Dove, Amy Hall Garner, Larry Keigwin, Lauren Lovette and Paul Taylor—and feature world premieres by Lovette, PTDC’s Resident Choreographer, and Keigwin, Taylor Company Commissioned choreographer. Music on all programs will be performed live by Orchestra of St. Luke’s (OSL), conducted by Taylor Music Director David LaMarche and Tara Simoncic. Continuing his mission to build a repertory for the 21st Century, Artistic Director Michael Novak will present four works by three of today’s leading dance makers.

Lauren Lovette will be represented by two new works. Dreamachine, set to Michael Daugherty’s percussion suite of that name, will have its New York premiere. Premiered in Los Angeles in April 2023 with set and costumes by Santo Loquasto and lighting by Jennifer Tipton, Dreamachine will include the world premiere of a new section created for New York and featuring Daugherty’s score performed by OSL.

Lovette’s Echo, created for the men of the Taylor Company, will be given its world premiere. Set to Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Kevin Puts’s Contact to be performed live by OSL and 2023 Grammy Award-winning trio Time for Three. Echo will feature costumes designed by renowned fashion designer Zac Posen and lighting by James F. Ingalls. Complementing Echo will be a dance featuring the women of the Taylor Company: Ulysses Dove’s 1986 masterwork Vespers, set to music by Mikel Rouse and staged by the late choreographer’s brother, Alfred Dove.

Larry Keigwin, who created Rush Hour on commission for the Taylor Company in 2016, will premiere his second PTDC work Drum Circle, set to a score by Argentine composer William Catanzaro and performed live by multi-percussionist trio CHAIN. Drum Circle will have costumes by William Ivey Long and lighting by James F. Ingalls.

Amy Hall Garner’s Somewhere in the Middle will return following its premiere performances last season. Set to the music of Count Basie, Sarah Vaughan, Duke Ellington, Wynton Marsalis and Bill Evans, the dance has costumes by Mark Eric, set by Donald Martiny and lighting by Jennifer Tipton.

The season will also feature nine Paul Taylor classics spanning thirty years of extraordinary creativity: Book of Beasts (1971), Esplanade (1975), Cloven Kingdom (1976), Le Sacre du Printemps (The Rehearsal) (1980), Mercuric Tidings (1982), Last Look (1985), Eventide (1997), Piazzolla Caldera (1997) and Black Tuesday (2001).
