Paul Taylor: Creative Domain documentary


Paul Taylor: Creative Domain documentary Paul Taylor: Creative Domain

A reluctant icon: A documentary by filmmaker Kate Geis illuminates the creative process of the very private dance master, Paul Taylor.

Paul Taylor is one of the dance worldís most elusive and admired choreographers. For over 50 years, he has given only glimpses into his creative process. Geis is one of just two filmmakers to receive Taylorís blessing to do a feature-length documentary about his work.

The film, which details the creation of his 133rd dance Three Dubious Memories the legendary choreographer he opens the door and allows us into his creative process. The piece is a Rashomon-like exploration of memory: three characters entangled in a relationship, each believing only in his own dark recollection of it. The dominant voice in the documentary is Taylorís, and it is alternately soothing, demanding, and amused. Between the guarded and unguarded moments, the viewer is witness to a mysterious work ethic that has created some of the most iconic modern dances of our time.
