Already a celebrated principal dancer with New York City Ballet, Taylor Stanley pursues new movement frontiers for this program, Dichotomous Being, alongside guest artists. During two 2021 Pillow Labs, Stanley developed a Pillow-commissioned ensemble work by postmodern choreographer Jodi Melnick and a solo by choreographer Shamel Pitts.
He will also perform an adaptation of Andrea Miller’s sky to hold, originally created for the New York City Ballet’s 2021 Fall Gala; a commissioned solo by William Forsythe; and Talley Beatty’s renowned Mourner’s Bench, a solo of great significance to the Pillow, having been danced here by Beatty himself. Stanley and his collaborators will return to the Pillow Lab again in March this year, ahead of the Festival performances.
