Earth Trilogy for Take Root at Greenspace

May 17, 2019, 8 p.m.

Greenspace, 

37-24 24th Street, Suite 211

Long Island City, NY 11101



Earth Trilogy will premiere at Take Root at Greenspace. The 30 minute work explores the human impact upon the natural world in three sections. The first is based on Isadora Duncan dances that have rhythms and properties of our natural environment at their core, dances that celebrate the wonders of water, earth and air. The second section depicts how humankind might have destroyed the precious natural world that we as a species have taken for granted. Surreptitiously, our own waste products, a product of our self-indulgence and self-centeredness, destroy us. The final section—with a special musical appearance by the women’s choir Willow—is a statement of possibility, a hymn embodied in music and movement to honor our earth. Tickets available NOW. Friday evening performance

Saturday evening performance (with special appearance by Willow Women's Choir)

I Hear America Singing, I See America Dancing

Description:

The first of several venues in which we will be offering this program:

On this 200th birthday anniversary of poet Walt Whitman (May 31, 1819) and Isadora Duncan's 141st birthday, May 27,  we celebrate the  legacy of these two pivotal artists. 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. Renowned local actress and activist Shirley Romaine will deliver poems by Whitman, which will be illustrated by authentic Duncan dances presented by Dance Visions, NY, under the direction of Beth Jucovy. Duncan dance pianist Mark Fiedler will play many of these works live, to the music of Chopin, Brahms, Gluck, Strauss, Schubert and we are excited to be reviving a work to the music of Sheyne.

Blurred Boundaries at Dixon Place

Description: Our work, Blurred Boundaries was selected to be part of 8 in a Show at Dixon Place, part of Creative Performances. The work will be presented along with other unique works by emerging and established choreographers. This work explores responses to death and the concept of alternate, intersecting universes. On this 10th anniversary of their passing,  this performance is dedicated to the eternity of Theda and Len Detlor. It is also dedicated to Johnny Cathcart, Chutima Jiemvitayanukoon, and to David Ramm and all those who have passed too early from our realm, and those they left behind.
