Event Description

The UNM Dance Program announces a powerful joining of forces. The American Dance Legacy Initiative (ADLI) from Brown University in partnership with the Arts Learning Laboratory brings members of the legendary José Limón Dance Company for a residency at the University of New Mexico from September 3 through September 14, 2013 in Albuquerque. This residency was partially funded by an NEA grant to Brown University and the Department of Theatre and Dance through the Ann Rutledge endowment in memory of Elizabeth Waters. UNM has been chosen as a site to partner with ADLI in developing a Repertory Etude™ based on Limón’s choreography.

A culminating event of this residency is scheduled for September 14, 2013. This all-day event will begin with a master class with Carla Maxwell, Artistic Director of the Limón Company. There will be afternoon sharing of ideas and works by members of the dance community from across New Mexico. Finally, an evening performance will feature works by Dancing Legacy; the resident ADLI dance company, UNM dancers and choreographer Donna Jewell.
