Limon Dance Company

Recommended Posts

I've been rereading Pauline Koner's autobiography, Solitary Song, this summer. The chapter on Doris Humphrey is unintentionally revealing regarding the disappearance of the Humphrey repertory. As I read along, I kept a tally of the dances Humphrey created from 1946-1958 and Koner mentions:

Lament for Ignacio Sanchez Meijas (1946)

Day on Earth (1947)

Corybantic (1948)

Invention (1949)

Night Spell (1951)

Fantasy and Fugue (1952)

Ritmo Jondo (1953)

Ruins and Visions (1953)

Felipe el Loco (1954)

Airs and Graces (1955)

Theatre Piece No. 2 (1956)

Dance Overture (1957)

Brandenburg Concerto No. 4 (1958)

The last time the Limon company performed any of these dances was in 2006, when Day on Earth and Lament for Ignacio Sanchez Meijas were revived. The latter was supposed to be revived in excerpt perform this summer but, other than that, the Humphrey repertory is non-existent at Limon. 

Dance Overture (1967)
