Past Event

Canadian choreographer Aszure Barton made a strong first impression last year with her powerful, theatrical Untouched for Los Angeles Ballet. L.A. has another chance to see Barton's work, this time with her own Aszure Barton & Artists. The calling card is Awáa (the title translates as "one who is a mother" in a Canadian indigenous language). The 90-minute work follows a half-dozen men focused on a single woman and generally has received high praise from critics since its premiere in 2012. This is the first of three events this weekend as the Music Center pairs with the Ford Theatres under the banner Music Center on Location. On Saturday, fast-rising L.A. contemporary dance troupe Jacob Jonas the Company shares the stage with Tim Hecker's electronic music, and Sunday welcomes multitalented Rufus Wainwright.
