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

My husband and I are trying to better understand the culture of Asia. We were eager to see modern dance. We have found what they were looking. High skill, hard work, training and professionalism of each musician, without exception (12) requires me to put the highest score. Music .... not mellifluous. My husband and I jumped from their seats when the music suddenly burst into the room. Perhaps, the effect was conceived in advance, but annoying.
Acclaimed Taiwanese choreographer Lin Hwai-Min founded Cloud Gate II to foster new talent and showcase the next generation of Taiwanese dance. Dance Europe describes this innovative ensemble as, "a vibrant Company." Cloud Gate II's portfolio of work is celebrated around the world as some of the most innovative and creative contemporary dance to come out of Asia in decades. At the forefront of modern dance, Cloud Gate II dares to take beautiful risks that produce equally stunning outcomes.
