UCLA Live presents world-class performing arts with a global perspective, enhancing the experience by engaging, cultivating and developing artists and audiences. Active, intrepid and ever-evolving, UCLA Live is powered by the work and imagination of today’s most extraordinary performers coupled with the energy and attitude of Los Angeles itself.
One of the most unique presenters of performing arts in the country, UCLA Live’s skillfully curated seasons offer a kaleidoscope of peerless artists in dance, music, spoken word and experimental theater to thousands of Los Angeles patrons every year. UCLA Live events occur primarily in one of the most prized buildings on the UCLA campus--historic Royce Hall, renowned for its acoustic excellence and tremendous sightlines.
Like the city that surrounds it, UCLA Live promotes an aesthetic vision of fusion and diversity—in which concert hall divas, world-class chamber orchestras and hip-hop dancers may share the season—and sometimes the stage—with postmodern dancers, world music superstars, contemporary storytellers, and rock -n-roll mavericks.
The local and the global, the ancient and the modern converge in UCLA Live’s unique ideology, which celebrates the spirit of the avant-garde while simultaneously embracing the rich tradition and artistic vision of cultures from the far corners of the world.
