We are proud to announce our performing arts season begins with a BANG this summer! The Paul Taylor 2 Dance Company will be in residence at Windhover starting on Tuesday, June 27 until Sunday, July 2, 2017. The company of six dancers will be teaching masterclasses all week long, and then culminating in three dance performances scheduled at Windhover on Thursday, June 29 at 7:30pm, Friday, June 30 at 7:30 and Saturday, July 1, at 7:30pm. The performances will be on the outdoor stage if weather allows. Otherwise they will be performed inside the back studio and it will be first come first served with limited space.

The performance schedule is as follows:
Thursday and Friday night’s performances include the late Ina Hahn’s choreography to Bach’s cello suite no.6 performed live by cellist Josh Gordon. The piece is titled: “Fragments of Six”. Sharing the program is Paul Taylor’s work titled “Junction” performed to Bach’s cello suites no.1 & 4 (sections) and this will be performed live.
“Tracer” is the last piece on the program and was a lost work from 1962 that was reconstructed last year. It involved a collaboration between the late renowned artist Robert Rauschenberg with Paul Taylor. Art historian Robert Saltonstall Mattison will provide insights into this collaborative process.
On Saturday evening, July 1st, the program is an all-out Taylor program with highlights and masterpieces which include: “Company B” with songs sung by the Andrew Sisters. The songs express sentiments of Americans during World War ll. The “Uncommitted”, with music by Arvo Pärt is from 2011. And “Junction” performed to Bach’s cello suites no. 1 & 4 is a link to Ina Hahn, as both choreographers were musical and used J. S. Bach in their works.
