Dance Visions was founded by Beth Jucovy in 1990. Devoted to keeping the Isadora Duncan dances and aesthetic alive and current, the company also presents unique, original works which express our shared humanity in our current times. Often works are site-specific or tailored for particular venues or audiences. We bring pure dance works, dance/theater works and narrated, educational programs to local and wider audiences.

We are delighted to be part of a shared evening program along with Double Take Dance for Fast Forward at Dixon Place. We are presenting Earth Trilogy, a three-part work. The first section includes Isadora Duncan dance solos that celebrate the wonders of our natural world. The second section, Delicate Web, created in collaboration with the performers, depicts how we, humankind, in our self-absorption, have destroyed the precious natural world that we have taken for granted. It alludes to the present-day issues that will challenge us even more drastically in the future…. unless we take extremely dramatic action. The 3rd section, Hymn, is a prayer for the Earth. Hymn is in juxtaposition with, and serves as an aftermath for, Delicate Web. Program includes Tzena as poetry reader, Willow Interfaith Women's Choir, and our ten dancer/collaborators.
Description: 2019 is the 200th birthday anniversary of poet Walt Whitman (May 31, 1819) and we celebrate his legacy with an Isadora Duncan dance program in his honor: I Hear America singing, I See America Dancing. Isadora Duncan was greatly influenced by Whitman, calling him her spiritual teacher. We will pay tribute to these two kindred spirits through word, dance and music. Excerpts of poems by Whitman are illustrated by complementary Duncan dances. Pianist Mark Fiedler will play many of these works live, to the music of Chopin, Brahms, Gluck, Strauss, Schubert and we are excited to have revived "Labor/Famine" created by Irma Duncan to the music of Micheal Sheyne. To learn more about Whitman, Duncan and their connection as well as about this program, see this article in the French publication, IdEas, by Adeline Chevrier-Bosseau.

Performance is inside and out at Veatch House. Included is live music featuring the UU’s own Willow Women’s Choir under the direction of Farah Chandu and also percussionist Napoleon Revels-Bey.

Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and administered by The Huntington Arts Council.
