Limón : a life beyond words( Visual )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Revolutionary modern dancer and choreographer José Limón (1908-1972) was a crucial figure in the development of modern dance: his powerful dancing shifted perceptions of the male dancer, while his choreography continues to bring a dramatic vision of dance to audiences around the world. This film combines interviews with family members and colleagues, archival photographs, and archival and contemporary performances to present his life and major works in the context of the times. Limón was a man who dealt with his bi-conflicts through his art. Excerpts from productions beautifully filmed in the fifties include "The Moor's Pavane," "The Traitor," and "Emperor Jones."

José Limón : an unfinished memoir by José Limón( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation Both as a dancer and a choreographer, Jose Limon electrified audiences from the1930s to the 1960s. With his striking looks and charismatic presence, he was American modern dance's first male star. Born in Culiacan, Mexico, in 1908, the eldest of twelve children, he came to the United States when he was seven. In 1928, after a year at UCLA as an art major, he left for New York. Here, he attended his first modern dance concert and discovered his destiny. He spent the 1930s with the Humphrey-Weidman group. Then, in the 1940s, after a stint in the army, and with Doris Humphrey as artistic advisor, he formed one of the outstanding modern dance companies of the postwar era. His greatest works -- The Moor's Pavane, La Malinche, The Traitor, A Choreographic Offering, There is a Time, Missa Brevis -- extolled a humanism that endeared them to audiences the world over. Although Limon died in 1972, all these dances remain in the Limón Dance Company's active repertory. This memoir was commissioned by Wesleyan University Press in the late 1960s. Left unfinished at the time of Limon's death, it stands on its own as a Joycean account of the coming of age of an unusually perceptive dance artist. Limon writes with eloquence of his Mexican childhood. And of the numerous figures he memorializes, from Martha Graham to Jose Covarrubias, none is more luminously evoked than Doris Humphrey, the "goddess," "nymph," and "caryatid" of his life. Sensitively edited by Lynn Garafola, the book includes a complete list of Limón's works, richly informative notes, rare photographs, and a detailed bibliography. This is the single most important book on Limón and a riveting memoir of modern dance during its golden age
