Sands Point Preserve honors the legendary choreographer Isadora Duncan’s aesthetic and body of work which were created in the early 20th century – the same era in which the Guggenheim Estate was formed. The company will perform a combination of Duncan’s works as well as Jucovy's contemporary works in the great hall at Castle Gould - with a preliminary outdoor appetizer of dances in the entrance garden. Highlights included revivals of timeless Duncan repertory and original works chosen and tailored for this unique environment.
