Fall Dance Concert

A suite from Psalm, a dance originally choreographed by José Limón in 1967, will be performed as part of the Fall Dance Concert presented by Hofstra University’s Dance Program, Thursday through Sunday, November 29-December 2. Limón (1908-1972) was praised by The New York Times as the “finest male dancer of his time.” He created Psalm as a tribute to the Jews who died in World War II.

Restaged by Adjunct Professor Pablo Francisco Ruvalcaba, a former dancer with the Limón Dance Company, the dance is based on the ancient tradition that the sorrows of the world rest with 36 “Just Men,” (in Hebrew, Lamed-Vov). These men are ordinary mortals who are unaware of their station. It is believed that if even one of them were to go missing or stop being righteous, mankind would perish. This dance is the history of one such “Just Man” or, in this performance, a “Just Woman.”

The Fall Dance Concert takes place at the Toni and Martin Sosnoff Theater at the John Cranford Adams Playhouse. Show times are 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday; 2 and 8 p.m. on Saturday; and 2 p.m. on Sunday.
