As part of its 65th anniversary celebration, Limón Dance Company, under the direction of Carla Maxwell, will perform a world premiere pairing world renowned Cuban composer/performer Paquito D'Rivera with Rodrigo Pederneiras, the principal choreographer of Grupo Corpo, Brazil's leading contemporary dance company. This full-company work, Paquito's first dance commission and Rodrigo's first commission for a US dance company, will stretch the boundaries of Limón's legacy by uniting extraordinary music and dance. The program will also include a revival of Limón's 1956 masterwork The Emperor Jones, based on the powerful Eugene O'Neill play and set to the resonant music of Heitor Villa-Lobos.
