“PORTRAIT” by Micaela Taylor

April 8, 2022

Using a combination of pantomime and dance, Michaela Taylor, founding artistic director of the TL Collective, choreographed “PORTRAIT” for the Getty Museum’s “Poussin and the Dance” exhibition. Taylor and her dancers explore the internal struggles of Poussin’s mythical characters through extreme expressions and purposeful gestures. Filmed amidst the Getty Center’s stone architecture, the dancers display a mix of freedom and fear in Taylor’s interpretation of Poussin’s paintings.
