The Joffrey Ballet’s Romeo & Juliet performed at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion is a dynamic, contemporary take on the classic ballet. From the various costumes and settings spanning the 1930s, 1950s, and 1990s to the contemporary twists to the ballet choreography, watching Joffrey Ballet’s Romeo & Juliet is a refreshing and captivating experience.

Beyond The 805
 
The penultimate evening of FLAX’s The Dialectic of the Stars Bodies2 features choreographer and dancer Noé Soulier.

His inspiration for The Dialectic of the stars draws a star in Los Angeles: a place of contradiction, hallucination and mystery, at once “political and poetic.” I keep his portrait of Los Angeles at the forefront as he introduces Soulier.
