Event Information

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.

A favorite of the Luckman stage, Raiford Rogers Modern Ballet will present the full-length ballet,
Naivete of Flowers (Acts 1 & 2), set to the music of Lloyd Rodgers. The choreography accents the composer’s post-minimalist style, so the performers reveal a sense of freedom filling the stage with beautiful imagery using a movement style strongly rooted in classical ballet, all while moving boldly forward into new territory with cutting-edge choreography they are lauded for. Artist Mike Nava has created a series of projected paintings for the ballet’s backdrop.

This presentation will stream begining March 12, 2021 at 6:00 PM and run until 11:59 PM on March 21, 2021.
