USC Kaufman, The Music Center and LACMA Present ‘Fall for Forsythe’

University of Southern California’s Glorya Kaufman School of Dance (USC Kaufman), The Music Center, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) present Fall for Forsythe, a month-long celebration of the work of American-born and internationally recognized choreographer William Forsythe, whose multiplatform dances transcend tradition. The public can attend a number of free and ticketed events and performances ranging from dance performances by students and professional dancers, to lectures and a costume display.


Gaga Summer Intensive

In August, Gaga will host its annual summer intensive program in the newly-built Glorya Kaufman International Dance Center, the 54,000+ square-foot-home of USC Kaufman. The one-week intensive, led by alumni of Ohad Naharin’s Batsheva Dance Company, will include classes in Gaga/dancers, Ohad Naharin’s repertory and Gaga “methodics.”

This year’s intensive will be held Aug. 15-20, 2016, and is open to all professional and advanced dance students 18 years old and older. A few spots still remain. For application details, visit GAGA/USA.

USC Choreographic Institute

The choreographic institute is a flexible research platform advised by choreographer William Forsythe.

Students will be part of fieldwork and studies that develop taxonomies, methodologies and mediums for articulating possible actions in the field of choreography. The Institute will work closely with partner schools within USC, including the School of Cinematic Arts and the Thornton School of Music, and will engage with practitioners from a variety of disciplines to provide stimulating ground for creation and curiosity.
