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

I have seen many a Flamenco show, and have even seen the National Spanish Ballet in Madrid, but never had I seen Flamenco done with real Gipsy/Gitano flare... the speed of their footwork, the drama, the vocalization of the singers, the theatrics of it all, as authentic as the gipsies found dancing in the caves of the South of Spain. Simply superb. A visual banquet. Thank you UCLA and Spain's Ministry of Tourism.
Quotes & Highlights
- "This is raw flamenco, full of power, fire and unbridled masculinity." -- <em>The Daily Telegraph</em>
Featuring Farruco, La Farruca, Barullo and La Faraona
Renowned for its dazzling footwork, powerful athleticism and passionate intensity, the legendary flamenco family, Los Farruco, features three generations of dancers- all direct descendents of their late patriarch and flamenco master, El Farruco. Led by his twenty-year-old grandson, Farruco, who is rapidly gaining a reputation for his fiery and virtuosic performances, the Farruco clan also includes El Farruco's daughters, the highly respected La Farruca and La Faraona, and second grandson, the elegantly reserved Barullo. Accompanied by two guitarists and three singers, Los Farruco promises a mesmerizing evening of traditional gypsy dance and music.
