Description: 2 videocassettes (VHS, NTSC) (126 min.) : sound, color ; 1/2 in.
Contents: Cassette 1 (ca. 63 min.). Tape begins with ca. 2 1/2 min. of still photographs. Hollander and Payton discuss how Limón and his men dancers created a model of male deportment in dance which emphasized qualities like nobility, power, and dignity; and how each of them came to dance with Limón. Hollander discusses how he learned part of Doris Humphrey's dance work Lament for Ignacio Sánchez Mejías (a work that also influenced Payton); his disappointment in aspects of Humphrey's choreography; Limón's great works; the enduring stage persona he first created in Chaconne; the creation of Limón's The traitor; company dynamics in Limón's all-male works; his Ode to the dance; the differences of his Emperor Jones and The traitor. Cassette 2 (ca. 63 min.). Hollander discusses Limón's experiments with companies of various sizes and ratios of male and female dancers; his works Redes (later titled El grito), Scherzo, and There is a time. Referring to Limón's Missa brevis, Payton discusses Humphrey's role as artistic adviser; Limón's facility of invention; the perception that the power of his works often stems from the original interpreter. Agreeing with the last point, Hollander describes Limón's special qualities as a performer, particularly his classicism; the cyclical changes of attitudes and preferences in the dance world, which may be leading to a resurgence of interest in his style; his memories of taking Limón's dance class; Limón's eloquence; the creation of Limón's Mazurkas (originally titled Dances in honor of Poznan, Wroclaw, Katowice, and Warszawa) after a European tour that included Poland. He summarizes Limón's contributions to western culture and recalls his own relationship with Limón. The recording ends before the conclusion of the interview.
