Paul Taylor Dance Company in Paris

Paul Taylor Dance Foundation Digital / Paris / Stage

For a limited time only, two Paul Taylor dances, as performed by the Paul Taylor Dance Company in 2012, at the Theatre National de Chaillot in Paris, are available online. It’s a beautiful pairing. Brandenburgs, from 1988, is set to—what else?—Brandenburg concertos by Bach; and Beloved Renegade, a 2008 work to Francis Poulenc, was inspired by the poet Walt Whitman. If these dances whet your appetite for more, get hold of the 2000 documentary Dancemaker. It’s one of the most intimate, insightful, and moving portraits of an artist’s life, the company he keeps, and the sacrifices art demands. —L.J.
