FirstWorks celebrates Paul Taylor, America’s greatest living choreographer of the 20th and 21st centuries, through a season-long project connecting audiences with art, dance, music, and American history. In February 2017, Mr. Taylor will be “in-residence” with his namesake Paul Taylor Dance Company to debut a new work in Providence prior to its three-week run at Lincoln Center in New York City. Taylor’s visionary work will be explored through a series of workshops, lectures, conversations, films, and performances beginning in October 2016.
