About this show

The Limón Dance Company's 56 year legacy lives on in the classic works of Jose Limón and Doris Humphrey. This season features the major revivals of Limón's The Unsung, celebrating the nobility of the American Indian, and a restaging of Psalm to a haunting new score, as well as Humphrey's dynamic New Dance, Variations and Conclusions. And the company continues to move forward with new works and some surprises: the premiere of Adam Hougland's explosively kinetic Phantasy Quintet, and Jonathan Reidel's The Unsightful Nanny -- an outrageous dark comedy inspired by Edward Gorey.
