Though it's a trite cliche, this week fulfills the adage "when it rains, it pours." There's a ton of good contemporary dance happening all over the city, and then some further south. The established homes for this type of work, REDCAT and the Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA's Royce Hall, are presenting some fantastic New York artists/companies. L.A. studios, theaters and even our own light rail system are joining the parade as they host local dance makers with big ideas.
