Dances by Isadora (directed by Catherine Gallant) invites all interested and curious movers to join our upcoming workshops in person at the Mark Morris Dance Center or via Zoom on Saturdays, January 7th, February 11 and March 11 from 3:15-5pm. Summer Workshop July 11-13. Check back for more info soon.
Each workshop will focus on the breath and embodied flow of the technique and include a close look at one of Duncan's works created between 1900 and 1923. Through an acknowledgement of Duncan's time period we re-examine and re-imagine the work making it our own expression rooted in the present.
Duncan is quoted as saying that she never taught her students to dance but rather asked them to appeal to their spirits. These workshops renew and build upon this vision of self-empowerment for a diverse and inclusive dance community. We will explore, deconstruct and re-imagine one of Duncan's dances and connect to our own time, bringing 21st century energies and understandings to enliven the work.
