We are no exception, we doing all we can to keep our works-in-progress developing and our artists working. We realize we must adjust to the demands of the times and we plan to create remote art experiences. We are also looking forward to the day we can again meet and rehearse and perform in person.

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.
