Syzygy- Paul Taylor Dance Company

Syzygy in 360 is an in-depth look into the choreography of Paul Taylor. Mixing rehearsal and onstage footage, the film gives viewers a unique immersive perspective on the work and a viewpoint they can only get through the use of 360° film techniques. Narration by dancers who were in the company when Paul Taylor created the work 30 years ago gives additional insights into what was behind the creation of the dance. The film pushes the boundaries of how dance is viewed in 360° and hopefully makes viewers want to learn about and see more of Paul Taylor's works.
