Staging "Images" by Paul Taylor: a beginning

On January 12th, 2010 Patrick Corbin, who today directs his own dance company but is also one of the most gifted of all the many generations of dancers of the Paul Taylor Dance Company, began the process of staging for CityDance Mr. Taylor's elegant 1977 work, "Images." The dance, which has never before been staged on an outside company, is deeply graceful and yet, as is so often the case, has layer upon layer inside it for the artist, the viewer and, in particular, the dancer.

This is the first episode in CityDance's multi-part video documentary series leading up the Company's March 12, 2010 Washington, DC premiere of "Images."

The documentary was filmed by Paul Gordon Emerson and Shannon Schwait, and edited by Ms. Schwait.
