In the end, there’s no reason to expect them to perform Taylor’s work like his own company does. AAADT simply doesn’t have the experience—it’s not in their bones, muscles, blood, nor is it likely that it will be, even if the company takes on many more of Taylor’s works, unless they all take one of PTDC’s intensive workshops. Like Cunningham, it takes years of developing specific muscles and honing movements, but the thing about Taylor’s style, in contrast, is that itlooks doable. Okay, maybe not the overhead presses, the flying leaps and crashes to the floor, the full-throttle speed… but break it down, and you think, yeah, my body can make those shapes. But think twice, and trust that with each Taylor dance added, AAADT will refine its interpretation of his style.
