By the time of his passing last summer, the choreographer Paul Taylor had not only created a vast body of great dances, but had established two troupes to continuing dancing that work—and the work of others—after he died.

His more experimental troupe, Paul Taylor 2, comes to Windhover for a week of master classes, rehearsals, and two performances. Events run Wed., Sept. 4 through Sat. Sept. 7. Free performances of three Taylor works—“Images,” “Funny Papers,” and “Airs”—will be danced on Windhover’s outdoor stage (indoors in case of rain). Visit www.windhover.org or call 978-546-3611 for complete schedule of events—all open to the public.
