DANCEMAKER

  • Description
  • Paul Taylor has been hailed as "the world's

    greatest living choreographer," having

    created a stunning body of dance work

    over the last forty years. When the

    curtain opens on the Paul Taylor Dance

    Company, audiences see a troupe of

    dancers soaring through the works of this

    formidable genius. But behind the scenes

    lies a complex world of ambition,

    emotion, creation and hard-nosed

    decisions.

    The film views the tension in an

    organization that sees itself alternately as

    an artistic tool and as an international

    business. And finally, it gets to the core of

    Taylor's talent as he wrestles with the

    making of a new dance that is the

    centerpiece of his company's season and

    of the film.

    DANCEMAKER is Matthe w Diamond's feature film

    debut.
