p>Only a handful of choreographers have gone on to achieve widespread recognition beyond the insular world of modern dance. Martha Graham, Alvin Ailey and Merce Cunningham did it through sheer genius and determination. Isadora Duncan is better known for her bizarre death than her pioneering innovations. Bob Fosse courted Broadway, and Twyla Tharp collaborated with David Byrne. And then there's Paul Taylor, who's less recognized but no less revered. With minimalist flair, his various works have centered on dancers checking their watches, drawn upon the sounds of early New Orleans jazz, and tackled surprisingly controversial social issues. Taylor 2, his touring dance company, carries on the legacy tonight as part of the Center Stage series at the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center (210 N. Santa Fe Ave., Pueblo, The curtain rises at 7:30, and tickets are $30 general admission, $27 for arts center members. — Bill Forman
