Summary
Because of its subject this film will doubtless appeal to dancers--but for the rest of us, it is a remarkable invitation to the dance. Paul Taylor began his rise to fame as a member of pioneering choreographer Martha Graham's dance troupe, now he's known as the best living American choreographer. The focus here is on his troupe: creating a new piece (the scorching, tango-derived "Piazzolla Caldera") preparing for the New York premiere, and the vicissitudes of both managing art as business and a tour in India. A fierce perfectionist, Taylor's work takes shape as a type of collaboration, "fooling around" with his nervous, eager-to-please dancers, but this is by no means as nonchalant as it sounds. Triumphs on stage are born of absolute ruthlessness in the practice studio. It is hard to be unmoved by his Taylor's work, and even viewers with little interest in the state of dance in America should find it engrossing
