Limón Dance Company

November 22 – 23, 2024
Zellerbach Theatre
PLA Presents

A titan of American modern dance, the Limón Dance Company performs The Traitor, one of the most significant works of the 1950s that explores betrayal through vibrant movement, lush musicality and haunting images. This iconic work is paired with two Philadelphia premieres - Scherzo, a compelling take on rhythm and movement that hasn’t been performed in decades, and a 2024 creation by Kayla Farrish, a powerful new voice in the dance world. Farrish’s piece will take inspiration from two lost Limón works, Redes and El Grito, and incorporate her own perspective on their themes of community and identity as an artist of color. Pairing classics with contemporary reimaginations, “José Limón’s work will continue to fascinate.” (The Washington Post)
