At an age when most artists’ best work is behind them, modern dance pioneer Paul Taylor continues to win acclaim for the vibrancy, relevance and power of his recent dances, as well as his classics. Recorded during the Taylor Company’s 2012 performances at the Theatre National de Chaillot in Paris, GREAT PERFORMANCES presents two of Taylor’s enduring masterworks: Brandenburgs, first performed in 1988 to music from Bach’s Brandenburg concertos #3 and #6; and his 2008 ballet Beloved Renegade, set to Francis Poulenc’s “Gloria” and inspired by the life and work of poet Walt Whitman.

"Paul Taylor Dance Company" on Great Performances can be seen on Friday, May 3rd at 9:00 p.m.
