A Thousand Ways (Part Three): An Assembly
Royce Hall Rehearsal Room

Obie Award-winning experimental theater duo 600 Highwaymen present Part Three of A Thousand Ways: An Assembly, which brings together an audience of 16 strangers to construct a unique experience. Using a shared script, the work explores how the most intimate assembly can become profoundly radical.

Branford Marsalis Quartet

Royce Hall 

Saxophonist Branford Marsalis is one of the most influential figures in contemporary music. The NEA Jazz Master, Grammy winner and Tony nominee is equally at home performing with symphony orchestras or sitting in with members of the Grateful Dead, but the core of his musical universe remains the Branford Marsalis Quartet. This ensemble is acclaimed for their original compositions as well as their interpretations of jazz standards and popular classics.

Multiple Grammy Award-winning “drummer’s drummer” Antonio Sánchez is internationally celebrated for his soundtrack to the Academy Award-winning film Birdman.

Tigran Hamasyan

Royce Hall 

Tigran Hamasyan became one of the most distinctive pianists of his generation by fusing jazz improvisation with the rich music of his native Armenia. On his latest album, StandArt, he brings his improvisational chops to deconstructed takes on standards, participating in American musical traditions while at the same time challenging familiar categories. In times of increasing division, his experimental approach is an inspirational reminder of the ways creativity overflows boundaries.

Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company

What Problem?
Royce Hall

The acclaimed Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company’s latest work, What Problem?, explores the tension between belonging to a community and the isolation that many feel during these divisive political times. Jones conceived of this project in pursuit of the elusive “we.” Jones and the company develop individual content with approximately 25 local community members in each of the touring locations, making each performance specific to its host city.

Seth Parker Woods

Difficult Grace
Glorya Kaufman Dance Theater

Recipient of the 2022 Chamber Music America Michael Jaffee Visionary Award and hailed by The Guardian as “a cellist of power and grace” who possesses “mature artistry and willingness to go to the brink,” cellist Seth Parker Woods has established a reputation as a versatile artist straddling several genres. Difficult Grace, a collaboration between Woods and dancer Roderick George, is a multimedia tour de force featuring Woods in the triple role of cellist, narrator/guide, and movement artist.
Israel Galván & Niño de Elche Three image

Sat, Jan 21 at 8PM

Israel Galván & Niño de Elche

Mellizo Doble
Royce Hall

The unclassifiable dancer Israel Galván recodifies the physical language of flamenco, incorporating a multiplicity of influences in order to break out of the accumulated sediment of tradition. Mellizo Doble is a collaboration with singer/guitarist Niño de Elche, exploring performance as a cyborg experience, a blending of passion and technique.

Thu, Jan 26 at 8PM

Cécile McLorin Salvant

Royce Hall

Three-time Grammy Winner and MacArthur Fellowship Award recipient Cécile McLorin Salvant is a composer, singer and visual artist who unearths the connections between vaudeville, blues, global folk traditions, theater, jazz, and baroque music. Ghost Song, her disquietingly evocative latest album, explores the ways people can be haunted — by lingering memories, roads not taken, ghosts real and imagined.

Thu, Feb 23 at 8PM

MVF Band

Royce Hall

With sax, keys, bass, and drums — plus the traditional Armenian Tar — MVF Band has spent the last decade together exploring new directions in Armenian music and perfecting their on-stage connection. Moving across genres, they are known for cross-pollinating folk idioms with progressive arrangements and original compositions. MVF Band is touring the U.S. as part of Center Stage, a cultural diplomacy initiative of the U.S. Department of State.

The Nimoy artists image


In Spring 2023, we will open the doors of the UCLA Nimoy Theater, a state-of-the-art performance space named for artist, actor, director and philanthropist Leonard Nimoy. 

The intimately-scaled venue will immerse audiences in a profoundly engaging experience of live performance. The Nimoy’s inaugural season presents new work by the legendary Kronos Quartet, electrifying Ethio-American vocalist and songwriter Meklit, “live documentarian” filmmaker Sam Green, and a collaboration between two essential musical voices of Los Angeles, Quetzal and Perla Batalla, among others.
