Paul Taylor Dance Company

April 21 – 22, 2023
Zellerbach Theatre
PLA Presents

“One of the most exciting, innovative, and delightful dance companies in the entire world,” (The New York Times) the Paul Taylor Dance Company returns to our stage in a program including the world premiere of If You Could Swallow the Sun by Omar Román De Jesús as well as Le Sacre du Printemps (The Rehearsal), where a dance rehearsal and film noir whodunit merge in a clever reimagining of the Stravinsky masterpiece, and Brandenburgs, an elegant and joyous Taylor classic set to Bach’s much-loved concertos. “The American spirit soars whenever Taylor’s dancers dance,” (San Francisco Chronicle) and this performance will be no exception.
