The Bird In Your Hand
Limón2 was created with the Institute’s most talented dancers, who enjoy an emerging career dancing classic and contemporary works and advancing community engagement through the Limón approach as its newest ambassadors. Limón2 has had the opportunity to work with Antonio Brown, Gregory Dolbashian, Ashley Lindsey, master Reconstructor & Program Director, Kathryn Alter, Associate Artistic Director Logan Kruger, and Artistic Director, Dante Puleio.
Bird in Your Hand explores gratitude for the possessions and relationships one already has instead of the things one may wish for. The piece features duets, group sections, and solos featuring connectivity. At a time when connecting with others is so significant and necessary, this piece represents the importance of appreciating each day we have and the people we share life with.
