Quotes & Highlights

“…bracingly contemporary and superbly aware of how much ballet can express without descending to desperate crossover strategies or hard-sell hyper-athleticism” —Los Angeles Times
“Los Angeles-based choreographer Raiford Rogers has discarded the pointe shoe and invented a distinctly original style of modern ballet.” —Back Stage

Description

Luckman audiences are lucky to have had many of Raiford Rogers’ works premiered before them on the Luckman stage before the works have gone on to receive acclaim around the world, from New York to Europe to Latin America.

Raiford Rogers, a Los Angeles-based choreographer, is the director of both the Raiford Rogers Modern Ballet and the Los Angeles Chamber Ballet, as well as choreographer in residence at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. His work has been performed throughout the United States, Europe and Latin America. The recipient of two National Endowment for the Arts choreographer fellowships, Rogers serves on numerous arts panels, most recently as a judge for the Alberto Vilar Global Fellowships. He also directs and hosts “Artshift,” which profiles leading Los Angeles artists and architects and airs as part of “Life & Times” on KCET (PBS).
