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

<p>Astonishing inventiveness, playful humour and physical beauty are the hallmarks of renowned US dance company Momix. For 25 years they have conjured up otherworldly imagery through original use of props, light, music and the human form.
For the special benefit performance, Momix performs a 45 minute excerpt from Opus Cactus. Created by choreographer Moses Pendleton, Opus Cactus celebrates the beauty of the earth's desert, as agile dancer-illusionists fashion a breathtaking and exotic world. In a series of fast-paced images, dancers perform amazing acrobatics, balancing on long poles and flying through the air on curving frames. A spectacular mix of dance, acrobatics, illusion and imagination, this family show will enthrall all ages.</p> <p>Note: This is a 45-minute performance of a piece that has never been seen in Los Angeles. Proceeds from this performance benefit the Music Center Education Division.</p>
