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

Lucy Guerin adroitly reflects the word salad offered by the ominous-sounding "MESSAGE FROM THE CENTER" program notes. I say "word salad" in that the "MESSAGE" manages to convey no precise meaning, though it is obviously trying REALLY HARD to communicate something, "Particularly explored in Weather, are the naturally occurring forces that exist outside of the realms of human control, and our DIRECT IMPACT upon the elemental properties that govern the natural world order". What I saw at the performance

Members of the department’s Climate Systems Interactions Group Baird Langenbrunner and Daniel Dauhajre will help you explore, from a scientific perspective, both the poetic manifestations of weather and the literal interactions between humans and the forces of nature.
