San Jose Taiko

Saturday, March 7, 2015 at 8:00 p.m.

For over 40 years, San Jose Taiko has mesmerized audiences with the powerful, spellbinding and propulsive sounds of the taiko drums. Inspired by traditional Japanese drumming, SJT company performers express the beauty and harmony of the human spirit through the voice of the taiko as they strive to create new dimensions in music and movement. With fully choreographed, theatrical performances, SJT combines the traditional rhythms of Japan with other world rhythms, including African, Brazilian, Filipino, Latin, and jazz percussion, while resonating with the Asian soul in America. Nationally recognized for its artistic excellence, San Jose Taiko uses the power and beauty of taiko to transcend cultural barriers and foster a greater understanding of Japanese-American culture.

Paul Taylor Dance Company

Wednesday, April 22, 2015 at 7:30 p.m.

“The American spirit soars whenever Taylor’s dancers dance.” –San Francisco Chronicle

The Paul Taylor Dance Company, established in 1954, is one of the world's most highly respected and sought-after ensembles.

Dance maker Paul Taylor first presented his choreography with five other dancers in Manhattan on May 30, 1954. That modest performance marked the beginning of nearly 60 years of unrivaled creativity, and in the decades that followed, Mr. Taylor became a cultural icon and one of history's most celebrated artists, hailed as part of the pantheon that created American modern dance.

Dr. Manuel Pastor

"America Fast Forward? Demographic Shifts, Economic Challenges, and the Future of California"

Friday, January 30, 2015 at 3:30 p.m.

Insert a description of the image here.

The social and economic changes in California in the last few decades essentially foreshadowed what is now happening in the nation as a whole; indeed, the demographic change in the state between 1980 and 2000 is what the U.S. is projected to experience between 2000 and 2050. In our passage, rising immigration, widening inequality, and a strained fiscal system challenged the state (and now the nation) but we are now at a critical turnaround as our demography stabilizes, our economy catches its breath, and public finances are finally on (slightly) firmer ground.

What's ahead for the Golden State? How do we insure economic, social and environmental sustainability for the next generation of Californians? And what are the lessons for a nation that experiences widening divides by income, geography and politics?

** Reservations are encouraged as seating is limited and on a first come, first serve basis. For disability accommodations please contact the World Theater at 831.582.4580.
