Dance On Film ~ The Winged
- Library Hall
“Wings seen and unseen bear us aloft.”
Choreographed by José Limón in 1966, the work has been taken out of the proscenium and into the aspen groves, hilltops, and the Great Plains in Colorado's Rocky Mountains. Through movement that resembles the intricate patterns and rhythms of birds in flight, The Winged, transports you to a world of nature that blends with the world of man. The film, co-commissioned by The José Limón Dance Foundation and Perry- Mansfield, is set to a newly remastered version of the original score with music by Hank Johnson, not heard in more than 25 years.
Choreography: José Limón
