Paul Taylor established Taylor II in 1993 to ensure that his works could be seen by audiences all over the world, unhindered by economic or technical limitations. To do this, he looked back to the 1954 origins of the Paul Taylor Dance Company for the structure of his new company: six professionals with a particular gift for his style who perform his work throughout the world. The repertoire spans the broad spectrum of his work. Several of the dances performed by Taylor II have been re-worked from the original Dance Company’s version to enable the smaller ensemble of dancers to perform them. Critics and audiences cheer as Taylor 2 introduces the athleticism, humor and range of emotions found in Mr. Taylor’s work.
Under the artistic direction of the Hawaii-born/half-Japanese Darcy Naganuma, Naganuma Dance is a contemporary dance company that draws upon many different disciplines to create captivating and socially dynamic dance works. Founded in 2006, Naganuma has assembled a company of multi-ethnic and physically tempestuous performers, presenting works that touch upon themes of cultural dissonance, the absolute and the relative, gender and class, through inventive choreography as performed by a cross-cultural cast of dancers.
