Nina Watt Limon Workshop

Fall and Recover after Halloween with the Nina Watt Limon Workshop this November!

Nov 2-Nov 6; Monday-Friday

Bessie Award winning dancer, Nina Watt, conducts a workshop in Limon Technique and Repertory.

Repertory workshop participants will have the opportunity to learn Limon’s Missa Brevis. Additionally, selected students from the workshop will be invited to perform the work in a showing on Nov. 21st.

Missa Brevis was choreographed in 1958, set to the music of Hungarian composer, Zoltán Kodály, who wrote it during the conclusion of World War II. The music was “A Mass in time of war, it was completed under great hardship during the siege of Budapest. Limon’s stirring choreography depicts an indomitable humanity rising up after near destruction. The piece is a memento to cities destroyed during World War II and to those unconquerable qualities in human beings that compel the spirit to rise in hope and to survive.” (limon.org)

Don”t pass up this chance to learn an essential piece of modern dance history by one of America’s most prolific choreographers!
