Without dance, people could only hum along to "Macarena," and Jane Austen characters would be forced to say what was really on their minds. Let movements speak with this GrouponLive to see Paul Taylor Dance Company at The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts. For $21, you get one ticket for middle- or upper-balcony seating on Thursday, May 10, at 7:30 p.m. (up to a $42 value, including all fees).
Renowned American modern choreographer Paul Taylor unpacks his signature work across The Hanover Theatre's sweeping stage, evoking a wide range of emotions with masterfully orchestrated dance numbers and social commentary. With each effortless twirl and graceful bound, his troupe of barefoot dancers acts out stories of war, morality, and finding the perfectly ripe tomato in the produce aisle. The performance's dramatic gesticulations stir audience members and critics alike, with the New York Times describing the production as "exhilarating," the New York Observer calling it "powerful," and the Huffington Post praising it as "dazzling." The choreography's accompanying music ricochets off The Hanover's elegant chandelier and gilt-edged walls, mobilizing against silence as effectively as an army of cymbal-clanging windup monkeys. The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts is a non-profit organization.
