Raiford Rogers Modern Ballet

Hailed by the Los Angeles Times as “bracingly contemporary,”Raiford Rogers Modern Ballet is an inspiring ensemble of dancers that breaks the traditional mold and reinvigorates this classic medium by presenting original dance pieces that reflect Los Angeles' unique civic identification. Created in 2002, the cutting-edge company returns to the Luckman Fine Arts Complex to perform new and classic works from their lauded repertoire. 

The program begins with Joshua Tree Symphony, the acclaimed second collaboration between Raiford Rogers and composer Zbynek Mateju. Following an intermission, the program concludes with the world premiere of Naivete of Flowers with music by Lloyd Rodgers.

Creator and two-time recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts grant for choreography, Raiford Rogers produces contemporary work, often in collaboration with local artists, which include: Where Are You My Love and Merge with jazz legend Charlie Haden, Cocktails With Joey with Joey Altruda and his Mambo Orchestra, Cabin Fever with Sandra Tsing Loh, Ex Machina with Los Angeles Philharmonic composer Carlos Rodriguez, and The Little Prince with composer Lloyd Rodgers.


This performance is supported, in part, by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commision.

General: $25, $35, $45

Available via Ticketmaster or the Luckman Box Office.
