7:30 pm Thursday-Saturday, April 4-6., Saturday April 06 | $26-$64.
Newmark Theatre
1111 SW Broadway
 
A selection of three contemporary works marry movement and music in a way that has compelled and confounded critics over the years. A favorite of White Bird and an instrumental player in the nonprofit’s launch, Paul Taylor remains an acclaimed American choreographer, but also an enigma. Taylor mixes classical scores with asymmetrical movement and often disparate sources of inspiration. In The Uncommitted, the newest work of the performance, a haunting series of solos, duets and trios brings new vigor to music by Arvo Pärt, which has become all too popular among choreographers. The complex Le Sacre du Printemps (The Rehearsal) is a detective-story ballet set to a live two-piano version of Igor Stravinsky’s 100-year-old revolutionary score. Finally, Taylor reprises his buoyant Brandenburgs, a 25-year-old musing set to Bach’s concerti.
