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

This was a first-rate performance with both the instrumentation and the dancing being superb. There was incredible variety with dances from different areas of mostly the Balkan pennisula. The male dancers were very athletic and performed entertaining feats that were in the "impossible" realm. The female dancers were very graceful. The small on-stange orchestra was composed of extremely talented musicians who were obviously having a lot of fun.
During the past 40 years, Frula has given more than 7,000 performances throughout the world. In the United States alone, Frula has toured 27 times, appearing in the best halls, such as Carnegie Hall in New York and the Kennedy Center in Washington. Presenting a rich and colorful program, Frula performs folk dances from all regions of the former Yugoslavia, as well as from Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, and Albania. Breathtaking technique transforms folk into a theatrical show. Dazzling authentic costumes, athletic prowess, cultural pride, and the performers' inner joy, combined with musicians, dancers, singers, and technical expertise, proving that Frula is an exciting perpetuator of cultural heritage.
