Sans Limites Festival

Description:

Our work, Blurred Boundaries was selected to be part of the Sans Limites Festival this year,  in the company of several other unique works by emerging and established choreographers. This work explores responses to death and the concept of alternate, intersecting universes. It is dedicated to the eternity of Theda and Len Detlor, to Johnny Cathcart and all those who have passed too early from our realm, and all those they left behind.

Highlights of this culminating program of our Summer series included Isadora Duncan masterpieces that celebrate the resiliency and triumph of the human spirit: the company's acclaimed staging of Duncan's "Russian Workers Songs" and the heroic Allegro Molto Vivace section of the Tchaikovsky Symphony "Pathetique." In addition Duncan's Chopin dances celebrating nature, favorites from Gluck repertory with themes of Greek mythology and Beth Jucovy's original work, "Rejuvenation" were featured. These dances were presented outdoors in the natural setting of the UUCSR beautiful estate.
