Catherine Gallant teaches monthly at the Mark Morris Dance Center Isadora Duncan/ACCESS is an ongoing series of learning experiences that explore the work of Duncan and provide contemporary inquiry into her work and legacy.
This workshop will focus on the breath and embodied flow of the Duncan technique and include a close look at one of her 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. We will renew and build upon this vision of self-empowerment for a diverse and inclusive dance community bringing 21st century energies and understandings to enliven the work.
