Raiford Rogers' programs are innovative and well-staged using only lighting to change moods. This program was typical of other RR programs I've seen in the past, but surprisingly short. At the end of the program, my friend and I looked at each other and thought, "That's was it?" The Luckman Arts Complex is a nice space for dance and there are good sightlines from every seat.
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
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.
