Limón Dance Company
Dante Puleio, Artistic Director
“We are never more truly and profoundly human than when we dance.” – José Limón
Celebrate more than 75 years of Limón Dance Company with this program of new and reconstructed works highlighting choreographer José Limón’s unique contributions to dance. In addition to Limón’s classic solo, Chaconne, the evening features Danzas Mexicanas, Missa Brevis, which incorporates dancers from Santa Barbara Dance Theater and Migrant Mother, a new commission by contemporary Mexican choreographer Raúl Tamez, who was honored with a 2022 Bessie Award for creating this powerful reflection on the migrant experience.

Border Crossings: Exile and American Modern Dance, 1900 - 1955
In January 2024, A&L joins the UCSB Department of Theater and Dance and the Art, Design, & Architecture Museum in presenting an exhibition, symposium and performance series to celebrate the contributions of borderland artists, largely erased from dance history, such as the Mexican-born American choreographer José Limón. A highlight of the project will be Limón Dance Company’s performance with guest dancers from Santa Barbara Dance Theater on Sat, Jan 27 at The Granada Theatre. Learn more about Border Crossings →
