This pioneering new piece experiments with Taylor dancers, as well as iconic songs from the mid-twentieth century, showing intimate life moments as we invite you into the living rooms, kitchens, bedrooms, and corners of the dancers’ homes. At our collective moment of physical isolation and virtual ties, 22 Rooms reveals and accentuates our connections amid anxiety and loneliness. Guided by his brilliant eye, and punctuated by his signature wit, Keigwin presents our dancers for the first time in a digital commission, allowing us all the opportunity to be inspired by the emotional sincerity the Taylor Company is known for.

Today, we are proud to share the next two short dances in the 22 Rooms series – one featuring dancers Eran Bugge and John Harnage and the other featuring dancers Christina Lynch Markham, Lisa Borres, Shawn Lesniak, and Jessica Ferretti.

We invite you to explore this artistic terrain with us as we continue to release subsequent scenes over the next few weeks. We hope you stay tuned because
We will keep dancing!
