This interesting and informative evening will include a lecture by Lynn Garafola, editor of Jose Limón's Autobiography "An Unfinished Memoir." The evening will also include dance excerpts from Limon's repertory, including La Malinche, The Moor's Pavane, and There is a Time, with dancers Kristen Foote and Jonathan Fredrickson.
Acclaimed for its dramatic expression, technical mastery and expansive, yet nuanced movement, the Limón Dance Company illustrates the timelessness of José Limón's work and vision. Founded in 1946 by José Limón and Doris Humphrey, the Company is now led by Carla Maxwell, who worked closely with Limón before becoming Artistic Director in 1978. The Company's repertory, which balances classic works with commissions from contemporary choreographers, is of an unparalleled breadth, creating unique experiences for audiences around the world.
The event is followed by a reception.
