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
From her early days as Rudolf Nureyev’s protégé and star of the Paris Opera Ballet to her current reign as principal guest artist at London’s Royal Ballet, Sylvie Guillem has electrified the dance world with her superhuman virtuosity and dazzling elasticity. Perhaps the world’s most celebrated ballerina, she has scored memorable triumphs with many of today’s most gifted choreographers. In an exciting exploration of the boundaries between two great classical dance forms, Indian classical kathak dance and ballet, Guillem teams up with renowned British Asian choreographer and dancer Akram Khan performing both solos and duos, accompanied by live music. Rooted in creation stories and myths, Sacred Monsters examines the notion of male and female energies as forces in opposition and in harmony with one another.
