Captive parking. $12.00. Considering most L.A. parking fees are pretty reasonable, even the Chandler Pavilion UCLA has a lot of nerve charging for that charge for parking off-hours in what is largely an empty lot.

Quotes & Highlights

“Blush is about boys and girls, loving, street fighting, falling out … raw sex, gritty humor and magical imagery.” —Financial Times

Description

Described by the French newspaper Le Soir as “a cross between Trisha Brown and John Woo,” Belgian choreographer Wim Vandekeybus and his company Ultima Vez create confrontational and intensely physical works that push dancers and technology beyond their limits. An explosive synthesis of live action, film and music, his latest work Blush explores love in all its dangerous and exhilarating splendor. Featuring a wild rock soundtrack by David Eugene Edwards of the bands Woven Hand and 16 Horsepower, Blush is set against a flickering backdrop of film sequences projected in large scale; dancers dive from the stage into the screen and seamlessly reappear on film, transformed into water nymphs in an underwater netherworld – a production seething with emotion, energy and raw sensuality.
