Revolutionary! Isadora Duncan
Isadora Duncan lived them and transformed them through her great art. A stunning dance/theater production of her life story told through brilliant, authentic reconstructions of her most famous dances.
“Light, skipping steps and yearning, beckoning arm gestures dominate the dance numbers, earnestly rendered by Valerie Durham, Ingrid Zimmer and company Artistic Director Cynthia Word, all clad in billowing fabrics. Thus, the relatively fraught, clenched-fist opener, “Revolutionary Etude” (set to music by Scriabin and performed on Sunday by Zimmer), stands out — seeming to embody Duncan’s iconoclasm.” — Celia Wren
Performed by actress Sarah Pleydell and dancers Valerie Durham, Cynthia Word, and Ingrid Zimmer.
