Limón Dance Company has been at the vanguard of American dance from its inception in 1946, bringing the immediacy of our common experience onto the stage, exuberantly and intensely, with musical and fully lived dancing. They speak, urgently and joyfully, of our lives now: how we face the world and how we sense that world around us, how we can be with others, how we can destroy the bonds between us, and how we can create community.
The classic Limón works, like Shakespeare’s, are as perceptive today as when they were made, and the dancers use them to talk to us of today’s individual struggles and triumphs, and of racism, domestic abuse, and our joyful ability to create community.

I’m very excited the the Limón Dance Company will be back at Purchase, and to renew our long connection! It is time for a resurgence of dance that speaks to how we live, and I’m particularly excited about this program which brings together Limón masterworks and new responses to our world. My first Limón Dance Company performance was at Purchase in 1982, so it’s a wonderful homecoming of sorts for me to bring the Company back to this magnetic and important performing arts center.
