Experience the brilliance of José Limón, one of the founders of American modern dance, in two of his historic duets set by Limón’s protégée and Miami Dance Luminary Daniel Lewis. Mr. Lewis has put these duets into a suite along with his own work, a tribute to Limón, using some of the last movement themes created by Limón and danced by Miami’s premiere contemporary dance company.

 

Special guest Carolyn Dorfman will join us at this performance. Dance NOW! will perform “ODISEA,” Dorfman’s potent work that chronicles the physical, emotional, and spiritual journey of Jews fleeing persecution from Brazil in 1654 and their ultimate landing on American soil.

Dance NOW! Presents the 1988 landmark work of Edward Stierle, “Lacrymosa,” originally performed by the Joffrey Ballet, in a commentary on the AIDS epidemic of the time. In this epic and tragic story, life imitated art with the premature death of this emerging choreographer at age 23. This work brings to light the frailty of the human condition and casts particular attention on the growing epidemic in South Florida.

 

*May 19 is a special performance free to LGBTQ youth with a talkback led by community leaders in collaboration with Project LEAP.  **Box office fees not included.
