Kansas City, MO – Since 1970, Jennifer Scanlon, a master teacher and reconstructor of the Jose Limon repertory, has been setting pieces, including Limon's The Moor's Pavane. Scanlon says the work, which will be performed this weekend at the Kansas City Ballet, is inspired by Shakespeare's Othello and explores the human condition.
