The January lineup continues with “Chroma,” a performance by the Vicious Circle Dance Company, at 8 p.m. Jan. 25 in the Campus Theatre. Inspired by Vicious Circle’s current repertoire, “Chromotherapy Club Meeting,” director and choreographer Valerie Cabag has adapted this piece into a full-length show. “Chroma” explores the use of chromotherapy (color therapy) and the effects that color has on the body. Cabag is an El Camino College faculty member and artistic director and founder of Vicious Circle, an all-male dance company based in Orange County. Tickets are $10-$21 and may be purchased at www.centerforthearts.org using the online ticketing system or by phone at 800-832-ARTS.

Global Music for Flute and Piano” completes the January events, presented by El Camino College faculty member and accomplished pianist Kristi Lobitz, who joins Susan Greenberg on flute for a concert at 8 p.m. Jan. 28 in the Campus Theatre. The duo presents a cosmopolitan sampling of music from around the world. Audiences will enjoy the undulating soundscape of Carl Reinecke's “Sonata for Flute and Piano in E Minor,” based on a German fairy tale of a water nymph seeking an immortal soul. Astor Piazzola's “Histoire du Tango” includes a series of musical snapshots featuring Argentina's most seductive dance. And Francis Poulenc's “Flute Sonata” is sure to captivate, as it depicts the light, airy style and witty humor of 20th-century French music. Tickets are $10-$21 and may be purchased at www.centerforthearts.org using the online ticketing system or by phone at 800-832-ARTS. The Ticket Office is open Monday through Friday 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Campus parking is $3. El Camino College is located at 16007 Crenshaw Boulevard, Torrance.
