Abstract:

Unedited footage recorded for the documentary Limón: a life beyond words. In a colorful and highly opinionated discussion, dancer and teacher Nona Schurman recalls her observations of José Limón, beginning with her years with the Humphrey-Weidman Company. Topics include: the interactions of the Humphrey-Weidman circle (Doris Humphrey, Charles Weidman, Limón, and Pauline Lawrence); the teaching of Limón, Ernestine Stodelle, and others; the organization of the elements of Weidman technique for study purposes by Weidman and Limón; Limón's departure from the Humphrey-Weidman Company and his marriage to Pauline Lawrence; the creation of his Danzas mexicanas at Mills College in 1939, and its editing by Humphrey; his qualities as a dancer; the concept of modern dance as ritual, intensified by Limón's Mexican and Roman Catholic heritage; Humphrey's qualities as a dancer, and her affirmation of the life force; the concept of form as message, exemplified in Limón's The moor's pavane; Humphrey's work To the dance. Also mentioned in the discussion are Hanya Holm, Martha Graham, Harriette Ann Gray, Beatrice Seckler, Katherine Manning, "Lou" [Lucas Hoving?], Merce Cunningham, and others. The tape ends with views of still photographs of Schurman and others.
