MOMENTA presents Dancing Our Legacy, featuring works that span more than a century and a half. Historical works beginning with August Bournonville’s delightful La Ventana from 1856 to Loië Fuller’s 1896 Le Lys (Lily of the Nile). Doris Humphrey’s 1920 collaboration with Ruth St. DenisSoaring to Humphrey’s 1928 Concerto in A Minor (Grieg).
