Dichotomous Being: An Evening Of Taylor Stanley
A celebrated principal dancer with New York City Ballet, Taylor Stanley pursued new movement frontiers for this program alongside special guest artists with Kyle Abraham as the Creative Producer. During two 2021 Pillow Labs, Stanley developed a Pillow-commissioned ensemble work by postmodern choreographer Jodi Melnick and a solo by choreographer Shamel Pitts. They also performed an adaptation of Andrea Miller’s sky to hold, originally created for the New York City Ballet’s 2021 Fall Gala, an excerpt from George Balanchine’s Square Dance, and Talley Beatty’s renowned Mourner’s Bench, a solo of great significance to the Pillow, having been danced here by Beatty himself. Stanley and their collaborators returned to the Pillow Lab again in March this year, ahead of the Festival performances. Dichotomous Being: An Evening of Taylor Stanley was filmed live during Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival 2022. Video by Nel Shelby Productions.
