In celebration of Paul Taylor Dance Company's 60th anniversary, ADF has commissioned a new work, Marathon Cadenzas, set to The Raymond Scott Quintette's classic recordings of The Penguin, Oil Gusher, Minuet in Jazz, Girl at the Typewriter, Twilight in Turkey, and Peter Tambourine. The work depicts a dance marathon where couples hope to survive to the end to collect the prize. Marathon Cadenzas premiered at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York in March 2014. In addition, the evening will feature well-loved masterworks from the Taylor repertoire.
