Paul Taylor: Creative Domain by Kate Geis (2014, 86 min.). Paul Taylor is one of the dance world’s most elusive and respected choreographers. For 60 years he has given only glimpses into his creative process, but for his 133rd dance, “Three Dubious Memories,” the door swings open. The documentary is an in-depth exploration of how Taylor creates a single work. Through the lens of award-winning cinematographer Tom Hurwitz, we see Taylor’s nonverbal communication with his dancers. Below the surface of this dance, and the many works that came before, is Taylor’s power of acute observation, revealing a side to his choreography that is strangely prophetic. The dominant voice is Taylor’s; between the guarded and unguarded moments, we see him with new understanding.
