First performed by Limón Dance Company August 20,1966 at Connecticut College American Dance Festival & re-created on location at Perry-Mansfield as a dance for film

“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

Reconstructor: Logan Frances Kruger

“'The Winged' is a marvelous work, both spacious and delicate – a distillation of what it means to float, to flutter, to soar.”
The Washington Post
