Barren Sceptre Reconstruction



Dancefusion reconstructed modern dance pioneer José Limón’s 1960 duet Barren Sceptre, originally created in collaboration with Pauline Koner and inspired by Shakespeare's Macbeth. Former Limón company members Evelyn Shepard and Ann Vachon set the reconstruction, and Dancefusion company member Janet Pilla and Pennsylvania Ballet soloist Meredith Rainey performed the work as part of Dancefusion's 20th anniversary season at the Iron Gate Theater at the University of Pennsylvania.
