Palm Arts is committed to bringing the Arts to our community. This weeks recommended Digital Showcase is the Paul Taylor Dance Company’s production of Sea to Shining Sea (1966)

In 2014, the Paul Taylor Dance Company celebrated its 60th anniversary. For this celebration, Paul Taylor invited all the alumni dancers of the Company to return for a one-time-only performance of his 1965 masterpiece, From Sea To Shining Sea.

Music: Charles Ives (later, commissioned score by John Herbert McDowell)
Costumes: John Rawlings
Lighting: Tom Skelton
Date First Performed: March 31, 1965
Notes: “If the United States had a proper arts policy, Paul Taylor would be declared a national treasure…Sea [has a] naughtily satiric view of Lady Liberty and the other symbols of America ranging from Superman to the KKK… Darkly funny.” – Christine Temin, Boston Globe
