July 31, 2018 – (Becket, MA) Acclaimed for dramatic expression, technical mastery, and expansive yet nuanced movement, Limón Dance Company returns to Jacob’s Pillow, August 8-12 in the Ted Shawn Theatre. Under the new artistic direction of Colin Connor, the company perpetuates the timelessness of José Limón’s work and vision, recognized today as one of modern dance’s greatest male dancers and choreographers. “Performing with luscious spontaneity” (The New York Times), Limón Dance Company performs Limón’s Chaconne, The Moor’s Pavane, and company staple A Choreographic Offering, with special archival footage of José Limón performing at the Pillow, as well as Connor’s Corvidae, set to music by Philip Glass, and Kate Weare’s Night Light.
“Connor is infusing new energy and innovation to this American cultural treasure,” says Jacob’s Pillow Director Pamela Tatge. “The program features Limon masterworks alongside new works that showcase the versatility of the Limon dancers.”
