Among the most acclaimed choreographers in American history, Paul Taylor has been reinventing the roles of music, movement and theme in dance for nearly 60 years. Kate Geis’s fascinating documentary offers a rare glimpse at the iconoclastic artist’s creative process as Taylor and his dance company stage a new work. “Three Dubious Memories,” Taylor’s 133rd dance, is a Rashomon-like exploration of memory in which three romantically entangled characters recount very different memories from their relationship. “In the beginning there was Martha Graham, who changed the form. Then there was Merce Cunningham, who showed us dance’s heart. And then, Paul Taylor, who let the sun shine in.” – Laura Shapiro, Newsweek.
