All-inclusive plus backstage Meet and Greet Artist Reception with Limón Dance Company soloist, along with Artistic Director, Dante Puleio.
Limón Dance Company will perform José Limón’s Chaconne, a solo from 1942 set to music by Bach. The Chaconne as a dance form originated in Mexico during the Spanish occupation. Bach employed the strict musical form of the Chaconne but enriched it with powerful emotional implications. Limón has tried to capture in his dance both the formal austerity and the profound feeling of the music.
At once textural and psychological, Andrea Miller’s Island harnesses the uncompromising virutosity and raw vulnerability of the GALLIM duo in a provocative study of the human body and its instinct to survive.
