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

STOMP is about making music with "found" objects. A high-energy, street vibe with a lot of dance and percussion. PANDEMONIUM, while an obvious cousin, is quite different. Instead, it's like you challenged a bunch of inventive musicians to make a symphony orchestra only using stuff they bought at a hardware store, resulting in both conventional and unconventional instruments made from unconventional materials (e.g. the horn section is NOT brass).
There was a bit of clowning around and some dance, but this didn't have the same high-energy choreography that made STOMP so exciting. It felt like watching a normal orchestra -- with a twist. Nonetheless, PANDEMONIUM was fascinating to watch and listen to.
It's on the UCLA campus, so really the only parking option is the $10 lot off of Royce Drive. Leave by way of a bridge at the SE corner, take the marked path to a north entrance to Royce Hall, and follow a white corridor all the way through Royce Hall and out the other side. You'll find the Will Call tables at the base of the steps to Dickson Terrace (set up facing south, with their backs to you). The seating was okay: in row K off to the left.
Give yourself plenty of time to deal with traffic, parking, and navigating the campus. Lots of people were late, with some not even arriving until intermission.

After the global success of their unique take on rhythm and physical theatre, Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas have taken the STOMP concept to a new level: where STOMP creates rhythm with everyday objects, PANDEMONIUM transforms everyday objects into a plethora of invented instruments. Performed by the LFO (LOST AND FOUND ORCHESTRA), PANDEMONIUM recreates every section of a symphony orchestra, using musical saws, bottles, whirly toys and traffic cones. Out of chaos is found an orchestra...
