The Phil Does Philip
When it comes to Philip Glass, the universe is the limit. L'Espace du Temps is a case in point. A trilogy of commissions from the L.A. Philharmonic, the work is a mesmerizing exploration of time, space, movement and sound. This week, Bramwell Tovey conducts the Phil in Music by Glass, Dance by Diavolo, an appetite-whetting program that includes the final installment in the trilogy, Fluid Infinities, composed specifically for the Bowl and featuring world-premiere choreography by Diavolo Dance Theater. Billing itself as an "architectural movement company," Diavolo is one of today's most innovative and invigorating body ensembles. Just as Glass knows no musical boundaries, Diavolo takes dance to the outer limits, utilizing every form of movement, from ballet to acrobatics, gymnastics, hip-hop and martial arts to express the danger and fragility of the human condition. Also on the program: John Adams' irresistible "foxtrot for orchestra," The Chairman Dances; Prokofiev's lyrical 20th-century masterpiece, Romeo and Juliet Suite; and Glass's Symphony No. 3. Hollywood Bowl, 2301 N. Highland Ave., Hlywd.; Thurs., Sept. 5, 8 p.m.; $2-$148.50. (323) 850-2000, hollywoodbowl.com.
Thu., Sept. 5, 8 p.m., 2013
