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

All of the dancers' technical abilities were outstanding. Movements did seem redundant. Wish that the choreographer and director had presented different music and different styles of dance to showcase these talented performers. Seating was less than I had hoped for: way off center close to the exist doors limited our ability to see the dancers during parts of the performance. Gold Star had done better in the past with orchestra tickets.

Excellent dancers! I Actually liked the choreography and the music even though there was a lot of repetition. Some of the lighting, especially in the first piece, while atmospheric, was a little too dark. Finely trained, beautiful dancers!
