Founded in 1946 by José Limón and Doris Humphrey, Limón Dance Company has been at the vanguard of American modern dance since its inception. The company continues to honor the legacy of its co-founder with revivals of his works—this digital program featuring “The Moor’s Pavane” (1949) and “There Is a Time” (1956)—while also continuing to break new ground in dance. Their 2020 co-commission from American Dance Festival, Chafin Seymour’s “Suite Donuts,” rounds out their 2021 Joyce digital season.
