“It zeroes in on a mystery.” –The Washington Post
Paul Taylor is one of the dance world’s most elusive and respected choreographers. This film is an unprecedented exploration of how Mr. Taylor creates a single dance, and between the guarded and unguarded moments, the viewer is witness to a mysterious work ethic that has created some of the most iconic modern dances of our time.
Presented in collaboration with Brown University Department of Theatre Arts and Performance Studies

The Paul Taylor Legacy Project: Art in Motion
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 their three-week run 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.
A Widening the Circle initiative developed by FirstWorks and American Dance Legacy Initiative, along with partners including the Brown University Orchestra, RISD Museum, and Cable Car Cinema.
