Intimate Salon Performances Celebrate Isadora Duncan's 141st Birthday!
Lori Belilove & The Isadora Duncan Dance Company celebrate Isadora Duncan's 141st Birthday
Featuring Company soloists Emily D'Angelo, Nikki Poulos, and Hayley Brasher, with pianist Cameron Grant, performing Dances of Isadora - the suite of Isadora Duncan solos recently performed for the Paul Taylor American Modern Dance 2018 Season at Koch Theater, Lincoln Center
The suite of Isadora's solo dances, staged by Lori Belilove, captures the essence of Duncan's feisty and romantic nature and traces Duncan's early years of playful and womanly joy in the waltzes and etudes and mazurkas of Chopin. Death and The Maiden takes her into a dark foreboding. Flames of the Heart exposes her struggle with love and art. The tragic death of Isadora's children left her despondent and is reflected in her dance Les Funerailles, to the music of Lizst, filled with grief, lament, and resolve. In an emotional catharsis, Rose Petals concludes the suite with a compassionate love for all.
Salon evenings also include selected ensemble repertory with the music of Gluck, from the opera Orpheus, performed by Lori Belilove & The Isadora Duncan Dance Company members including Faith Kimberling, Kim D'Agnese, Caroline Yamada, and Rebecca Allen.
