Theatre Novi Most Presents: Isadora Duncan in Russia
Come learn more about Isadora Duncan, the American dancer whose quest to find "the highest intelligence in the freest body" led her, for a time, to Russia. The first American granted a visa to the fledgling Soviet Union, the works Duncan made during the Russian years are among her most powerful and her notes from that time are full of idealism and heartbreak. In this special lecture, Jeanne Bresciani will discuss the archetypes Duncan was exploring in Russia and her unique blending of classical artistic ideals with modern new physical languages to depict the energy of Revolution.

The evening includes:
Lecture on "Isadora in Russia" and Duncan dance demonstration by Jeanne Bresciani
Reading of poetry of Sergei Esenin by Vladimir Rovinsky
Wine and light food reception by Board of Directors Novi Most

Jeanne Bresciani M.A, I.M.A., Ph.D.,the main protégée of Maria Theresa Duncan, adopted daughter of Isadora Duncan, serves as Artistic Director for the Isadora Duncan International Institute, Inc. (IDII), founded by Maria-Theresa Duncan and Kay Bardsley in 1977.
