Hailed as "one of the world's great dance companies," the Jose Limón Dance Company is the keeper of one of the truly great American artistic legacies of the 20th century. For over sixty years, Limón's choreography has continued to bring a dramatic vision of dance to audiences around the world, with a signature technique which underscores the body's natural rhythms of fall and recovery. Founded in 1946 by Mexican-born dancer Jose Limón, the company receives praises world-wide for its lyricism, fluidity, innovation, technical mastery and expansive movement. Of their work, the Village Voice writes, "For drama, virtuosity, and grace, there's no finer company."

Please join us for a pre-performance tour of the exhibition currently on view at the University Museum of Contemporary Art.
