José Limón based his technique on the natural rhythms of and dynamism between fall and recovery, underlining the idea that movement itself can create emotion and meaning. This season’s repertoire includes choreography by Limón, Brian Brooks, Talley Beatty and Mark Morris that explores the despair, thrill and humor intrinsic in the act of falling.
