Summary
Dance is a Moment captures Limaon's personality and achievements through a combination of narrative, direct quotations and stunning photography. The portrait is divided according to the spheres of his life: Part I, Life, is biographical and traces Limon from revolution-torn Mexico to New York. Part II, Work, focuses on Limon's choreographic process, taking the reader from the germ of a dance idea through to the performance. Limon's masterpiece There is a Time is used as the case-study. The book focuses on Limaon's relationships with his dancers, the composer Norman Dello Joio, his wife, costume designer Pauline Lawrence Limon and his mentor and artistic director, Doris Humphrey. Performance and behind-the-scenes photographs of the original cast illustrate the rehearsals and premiere. Intimate reminiscences of Limaon recalled by Charles Woodford bracket Life and Work, fully fleshing out this revealing portrait. The photographs--many never before published--depict Limon's personal life and professional career as a dancer. José Limon (1908-1972) was the foremost male modern dancer of his era (1940-1960s). He began dancing with the Humphrey-Weidman Company, then went on to lead his own company and to choreograph dances of brilliance and high drama. His company and school survive as testimony to Limon's significant contributions to and influences within the modern dance community. Includes 52 illustrations
