Timeless, dramatic and nuanced, the great Limón Company has been at the vanguard of American modern dance since its inception and is considered one of the greatest dance companies of all time! Founded in 1946 by José Limón and Doris Humphrey, the company was responsible for the creation, growth and support of modern dance in this country, and will celebrate its 75th anniversary with works that reflect on the history of the company and look forward to its next iteration. The program includes a new work exploring the resilience of the human spirit, Only One Will Rise, choreographed by Burkina Faso choreographer Olivier Tarpaga, whose early life experiences echoes those of Limón’s.
