On April 19 and 20, Limón Dance Company will join the Lubovitch season to perform Lar's critically-acclaimed Recordare. Created in 2005 as an homage to José Limón, Recordare is a comic and celebratory work themed around Mexico’s Day of the Dead, and danced to a modernist score by Elliot Goldenthal. At the time of its world premiere, the Washington Post declared that "Life and death are clasped in a tipsy waltz in Lar Lubovitch’s Recordare (‘Remember’), a boisterous yet ultimately softhearted work," while the Boston Globe termed the work "vibrant, colorful, and irreverent." Now, for two performances only, Recordare will share the stage with the Lubovitch company's 2007 premieres.
