Isadora Duncan lived her life in a search for freedom of body and mind. Early in her life she positioned herself against the restrictive social freedoms of women at the turn of the 20th century, opposing the institution of marriage and questioning long held assumptions about American politics and culture.
In this workshop we will focus on specific dances representing Duncan’s later works which contain the seeds of modernism through gesture and full bodied movement. Each day will include technique and repertoire study using improvisation and collaborative dance making as ways to explore contemporary connections.
