Paul Taylor Selling His House

I hope he puts the final amount he receives in a longterm investment fund rather than using it for shortterm operations!

And to that of Merce Cunningham.
It's interesting to compare Taylor's situation to that of Annie Leibowitz.
From Alma Guillermoprieto's piece in The New Yorker:
.........".his home, a top-floor loft on one of the noisier stretches of Sixth Avenue. I had never been there, and it took me a few minutes to take in the spectacular shabbiness of the place,.............It turned out that Merce, the greatest living creator of dance beauty and contemporary fusions of art forms, the inspiration to artists around the world, did not even own his own home."
It sounds sad out of context, but she goes on to say,
"There was no pathos in this discovery...............There was no discipline or self-denial involved in his neglect of his surroundings, just the carelessness of someone who woke up every morning, every day of his long, productive life, focussed on nothing but making the best dance possible that day."

Agreed, the interview is taking, especially to some one who heard his company manager, John Tomlinson, talk about him pre-performance just the other evening. (I'll try to get my notes up on another thread in this forum.)
