In partnership with the Ford Theatres, The Music Center On Location presents Aszure Barton's Awáa. Called “brilliant” by the San Francisco Chronicle and “audacious” by the New York Times, renowned choreographer Aszure Barton has made a major mark on the dance world. The Globe & Mail has called her choreography "genius" and the Boston Globe considers her "a rare accomplishment in the world of contemporary dance." Now, Los Angeles audiences can experience for themselves Barton's joyful, rich and deeply moving multidisciplinary world in her first performance since moving to Los Angeles. Her extraordinary Awáa is a powerful tribute to motherhood that “delves into the underbelly of human consciousness and explores some of the most primal aspects of being human: what it means to be born, notions of gender and the complexity of having a body.”  - The Dance Critic

The Music Center takes its creative vision beyond the places and spaces of its Downtown Los Angeles home and into the diverse venues and locales of greater Los Angeles with The Music Center On Location.
