Story/Time: The Life of an Idea

ALOUD @ Central Library

630 W. Fifth St., Los Angeles CA, CA 90071

7:15pm

Performance with Bill T. Jones and dancers from the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company in conversation with Kristy Edmunds

The multi-talented dancer, choreographer, and director Bill T. Jones presents a provocative collage of movement, music, and personal narrative from Story/Time, a recent dance work produced by his company and inspired by the legendary composer John Cage. This program coincides with the publication of a new book based on Jones’ brilliant hybrid work and meditations as an African American artist struggling to find a place in a white-dominated dance world. Jones and two extraordinary dancers from his company will perform and then discuss this powerful experiment in storytelling.

Reservations recommended. Please see website for reservation policy.

Tour De Force: Dudamel & Mahler 6

Walt Disney Concert Hall

Los Angeles, CA 90012

8:00pm

(3/5) "Tragic” was the label Mahler once used for his Sixth Symphony, arguably his darkest. “Not one of his works came as directly from his inmost heart as this,” his wife, Alma, wrote. Powerful and monumental, this is orchestral music at its most gripping and dramatic.
Come for: To hear Dudamel conduct music by Mahler is inevitably a memorable occasion, as Dudamel has a special affinity for this composer.
And more: The LA Phil has a massive wood box with an equally massive sledgehammer to realize Mahler’s famous “hammer blows.”

The Brad Dutz 4tet

REDCAT

631 W. 2nd St., Los Angeles, CA 90012

8:30pm

Celebrated for bringing an airy, bright, thoroughly original instrumental palette to its blend of 21st-century acoustic chamber music, improvisation and free jazz, the quartet led by ace percussionist and composer Brad Dutz first came together at REDCAT 10 years ago. It features Dutz on marimba, vibes and all manner of hand percussion, Brian Walsh on clarinet and bass clarinet, Paul Sherman on oboe and English horn, and Chris Votek on cello, with their precise yet fluid contrapuntal work conjuring a vibrant sound like no other. Even as Dutz, one of the most sought-after session percussionists in L.A., forgoes the conventional grooves in favor of color and texture, the band always stirs up a brisk, propulsive swing.
