On this 200th birthday anniversary of poet Walt Whitman (May 31, 1819) and Isadora Duncan's 141st birthday, (May 27 1878), 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. Excerpts of poems by Whitman were illustrated by authentic Duncan dances presented by Dance Visions, NY, under the direction of Beth Jucovy. This program also payed tribute to longtime company collaborator and friend, the late Shirley Romaine.
Description: As part of Sans Limite's 2019 Movement, we will present dances for "one night stand", which include works that preserve choreography of the early modern dance movement, as well as artists that are translating the choreography of the past into the present. For this series we will present Duncan dances from her Russian period including the solos to three Scriabin Etudes, performed by Beth, as well as the Russian Workers Songs with the company. We are delighted to be part of this exciting festival! Friday evening performance only: tickets on sale now!
We are presenting our newest work, an artist's statement on the major issue of global warming, in a showcase with WAXworks. Please see this piece, our 2nd section from Earth Trilogy, in full theater setting and share your thoughts with us! We are in good company with several other new works by NYC choreographers.
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)
