Ongoing: Limón Dance Company

by TOBI TOBIAS
the Village Voice

The current season at the Joyce features Extreme Beauty, a quintet for women choreographed by Susanne Linke, a singular German performer and dance maker who can trace her artistic ancestry directly to the legendary Expressionists Mary Wigman and Kurt Jooss.

Limón Dance Co Joyce Theater, New York

Both pieces effectively make use of the worn brick backstage theatre wall for a stark background.

Dreams for the Women, Indians for the Men

by JENNIFER DUNNING
the New York Times

The Limón Dance Company looked both to the past and to the present on Tuesday night in one of two programs it will present in its two-week season at the Joyce Theater. But it was at the close, in a dance about midway between the two poles, that the evening came most alive.

I do wish Robert Gottlieb would stop using the lazy journalistic term "Eurotrash".

Take the High Road with Limón—Modest, Serious, Uncompromised
by Robert Gottlieb

To go to the Limón Dance Company is to find yourself in a prelapsarian world—the world of Modern Dance as it was imagined and embodied by the Founders: Martha Graham and, in particular, Doris Humphrey and her protégé and colleague José Limón, who carried the torch of high seriousness and high ideals until he died, in 1972, and whose successors carry it still. This is dance that never dreamed of postmodernism, that never divorced itself from spirituality and aspiration. Even when it’s light-hearted, it’s serious—there isn’t a whiff of irony, malice or superciliousness. How amazing that it’s kept going—for 58 years now—without compromising its virtue.

Acquiring Extreme Resonance

by DEBORAH JOWITT
the Village Voice

After this ordeal, Lar Lubovitch's Concerto Six Twenty-Two seems like a gift from heaven. Mozart! Wonderfully musical dancing! The unfolding and interlocking space patterns seem, in this context, to reference Limón and his mentor, Doris Humphrey.

Company brings Day of the Dead to life
With a background in painting and extensive experience in musical theater, Lar Lubovitch is the ideal choreographer for a ballet based on the Mexican rituals of the Day of the Dead. Last night the Limon Dance Company gave “Recordare (Remember)” its world premiere at the Tsai Performance Center. It’s not an entirely successful dance, but nonetheless a vivid and entertaining one.

Troupe elegantly reflects on darkness and joy
According to the Bank of America Celebrity Series, the Limon Dance Company has not performed in Boston for 40 years. Saturday night’s splendid program of two of choreographer Jose Limon’s masterworks and a world premiere by Lar Lubovitch prompts the obvious question: Why so long?

Limón Dance Company at the Tsai; ...

Nearly nine decades of modern dance filtered into the José Limón company’s Bank of America Celebrity Series appearance last weekend at the Tsai Performance Center. Established in 1946 by the great choreographer Doris Humphrey and her most important protégé, Limón Dance Company has come through an administrative crisis in the past year and emerged looking confident, cohesive.

Limon Company Brings to Life Death Itself

Life and death are clasped in a tipsy waltz in Lar Lubovitch's "Recordare" ("Remember"), a boisterous yet ultimately softhearted work given its world premiere Wednesday by the Limon Dance Company

Here's to Life
A dance company turns 60. Light those candles!
by DEBORAH JOWITT for the Village Voice
published: November 21, 2006

The Limón Dance Company is celebrating its 60th anniversary. That's remarkable, considering that its founder died in 1972. Carla Maxwell, artistic director since 1978, must be doing something right. She certainly chose wisely in reviving two beautiful, small-scale pieces Humphrey made for Limón's company in the 1940s, Lament for Ignacio Sanchez Mejías and Day on Earth; in offering Limón's 1949 masterwork, The Moor's Pavane; and in commissioning Lar Lubovitch to create a new piece.
