FLOW at Cedarmere

Description: In addition to important works from Isadora Duncan repertoire, which enlarged the field of expression in dance in the early 1900s, this full evening program also features original works by Ms. Jucovy. An elemental characteristic of the evening is a dynamic principle known as “flow,” from which the event takes its name.  Duncan’s pioneering work is a full-on engagement with nature, space and emotion. FLOW will examine these relationships beginning with more intimate works, danced to live piano accompaniment in the beautiful Great Room at Cedarmere. The flower borders of the Sunken Garden will frame more dramatic storyline dances. And finally, as the sun slowly sets, there will be a veritable banquet of dances in the Lawn Amphitheater, taking us beyond the visual horizon of Hempstead Harbor into the deep serenity of a summer night. Tickets are$15, $10 for Seniors and Students (with ID), and Free for Children under 12 and can be purchased through  the site here or reserve by calling 516 544-3944.
