American Dance Festival: Limón Dance Company

Building on the success of last fall’s performance series at the NCMA, the American Dance Festival returns to Raleigh September 8–11 to present a series of outdoor performances in association with the North Carolina Museum of Art.

In performances of musicality, athleticism, and drama, the contemporary emerges out of the classics with the Limón Dance Company. With the company’s classic works and collaborations with contemporary choreographers, we see how powerful dance of the past and present can invigorate each other and us. The company, celebrating its 75th anniversary, will perform Limón’s classic Psalm, Air for the G String by Doris Humphrey, and a co-commission by ADF and the Limón Dance Company, Suite Donuts by ADF alumni Chafin Seymour.

Program lasts approximately 60 minutes with no intermission.

Health and Safety at the American Dance Festival

Suite Donuts by Chafin Seymour is co-commissioned by ADF with support from the Doris Duke/SHS Foundations Award for New Works and in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional commissioning support provided by José Limón Foundation.
