Now in its 60th year, the pioneering Paul Taylor Dance Company stages several of its acclaimed pieces at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Dubbed the "naughty boy" of dance by Martha Graham, Taylor's not only one of the greatest modern choreographers of the 20th century, he's also one of the 21st century's most daring innovators, still creating well into his 80s. His 16-member company embodies his continuing genius and nurtures new talent -- Tony winners Twyla Tharp and David Parsons are among its many distinguished alumni. Expect a wonderful show of kinetic movement, enthralling storytelling and surprising humor from one of the true legends of the form. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
- “this is not dancing that you will see anywhere else …” <em>--The New York Times</em>
- "It is not chemistry but alchemy. Ohad Naharin succeeded in turning the dancers into a cocoon of threads from which he draws knots, he cuts, ties, unties, glues, combines and erases the gap between men and women, and mostly--he hypnotizes." <em>--Israeli poet Roni Somek</em>
Since its inception in 1964 with the personal assistance of Martha Graham, Israel’s Batsheva has evolved into one of the world’s most outstanding dance companies, internationally renowned for pushing the boundaries of cutting-edge dance with intense energy, rich sensuality and a culturally diverse dance language. Its repertoire comprises works by dance’s leading innovators, including choreographer Ohad Naharin, whose work blends beauty, anger, serenity and sarcasm to reflect life in his homeland. His newest piece, Three, comprises three parts: Bellus (Beauty), Humus (Earth) and Secus, which translates as both "this" and "not this."
