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

Quotes & Highlights
- "A performer of almost Mephistophelean intensity... Greco is in command of one of the most exciting, original and eccentric dance vocabularies of anyone in contemporary dance!" --The Times (U.K.)
- "Greco deals in the electrical storms that zap and scintillate through our brain cells every second of our lives, waking and sleeping. He has both a poet's and scientist's curiosity..." --The Herald
Set against a stark soundtrack of violin strings and distant sirens, the loneliness of aftermath permeates Rimasto Orfano (Abandoned Orphan). Dancers dressed in ghostly white emerge from a backdrop in which a single dangling bulb casts floods of shadow and light. The body, forced into silence, questions any next step: to withdraw or regroup, to lead or remain behind.
