|REVEALING ISADORA…offers a fresh look at the legend and legacy of Isadora Duncan through the eyes of contemporary artists. The question is, “ Who was Isadora Duncan?” The answers are many, depending on who is asked.
The show features dynamic solo performances by Christine Jowers in works that include oddly graceful dream landscapes, odes to nature, explorations of feminine power and despair, verbal quandaries, and expressive improvisation.
The distinctive choreography by Ann Carlson, Margie Gillis, Kun Yang Lin, Catlin Cobb, and BJ Sullivan is skillfully intertwined with videotaped musings and dancing of renowned Isadora interpreters: Risa Steinberg, Catherine Gallant, Cherlyn Smith, and Karen Dantzler, who share their insights about the relationship of Isadora Duncan to their lives and dances future.
