Quote :"He believes people's entire life stories are reflected in their dancing" . This reminded me of a dance by Lucas Hoving, original dancer in the Jose Limon company. The dance was called "Growing Up in Public" and was choreographed by Remy Charlip, I believe. He (lucas) did this solo dance/performance which involved dance and his narrating/telling his life story...fascinating!! he grew up in Holland, was an accompanist for Mary Wigman, lived through the world wars, somehow got to America and danced in many seminal works by Limon, including "Moor's Pavanne" and "The Traitor" (I think that was the name of it!)HIs life was basically a history of the 20C , stumbling through and surviving various catastropic events, and working/collaboraing with some great fellow artists. Does anyone know anything more about Hoving or worked with him. I believed he lived in San Francisco for a while, also.

Thanks Azlan...I think I heard that he passed away, but wasn't sure...<BR>I didn't know (from reading the obituary) that he danced in Letter to the World (Graham)! Lucas was a wonderful person and teacher. Seeing him in "Growing Up in Public" was a rare privelege...I'm glad I saw that little bit of "dance history". Has anyone else seen him perform or maybe taken class with him in recent years..or maybe not recent years?
