Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Taylor explores aspects of himself that have affected his work. He delves into the creation of Aureole and From Sea to Shining Sea, from their initial inception to the ways in which specific dancers influenced the choreography, including such notables as Pina Bausch, Laura Dean, David Parsons, Twyla Tharp, Dan Wagoner, Senta Driver—all of whom went on to form their own companies—and others—Bettie de Jong, Nicholas Gunn, and Carolyn Adams—who remained as much a part of the Taylor style as the choreography itself. Taylor writes with sincerity, wit, and charm of his associations with Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham, Jerome Robbins, Anthony Tudor, George Balanchine, and many others.

Book News Annotation:

In this autobiography, noted dancer Paul Taylor explores aspects of himself that have affected his work. He delves into the creation of his major works from their initial inception to the ways in which specific dancers influenced the choreography. His discussion of the various aspects of his work, his various dance roles, and his associations with other major dance figures (Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham, Jerome Robbins, George Balanchine, and others) will interest dance afficionados. The book contains many b&w photographs. Originally published in 1987 by Alfred A. Knopf.
