Dance Visions NY's mission is to enable audiences to experience an emotional, spiritual and intellectual connection to the world of dance and to inspire audiences to engage with the challenges we face in today's world. Through the Isadora Duncan aesthetic and original works inspired by the principles, the company will continually explore and express our shared humanity. This includes timeless themes as well as the experience and perspectives of our current times. We hope to illuminate the connection between past and current issues. We build and educate dance audiences and contribute to the appreciation, scope and depth of the art both locally and beyond.
We hope to expose people to the joy, scope, and richness of dance as a vital and living art. Through presenting the authentic Duncan works as passed on by Duncan mentors Anna Duncan, Julia Levien and Hortense Kooloris, we preserve and give life to Duncan's artistic visions, technique and repertory. Dance Visions NY aspires to continue the Duncan artistic legacy by presenting the original Duncan Dances as well as new dance creations that take on a different form in the modern world.
This inter-disciplinary work brings to life the ideas and imagery of an original lyrical, symbolic poem by Kyra Jucovy. This thought-provoking and holistic artwork tells the story of a journey, following a river from its source in caves all the way to the ocean. With Actor Tzena Nicole, in monologue, woven into the choreography danced by the company. The movement is sourced from Isadora Duncan Dance principles and repertory which is fully complementary to the poem. Performed outdoors in three separate locations for each section at the beautiful preserve and historical home of W.C. Bryant, America's first poet and pivotal journalist. Co-presented by Friends of Cedarmere. *This program is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and administered by The Huntington Arts Council.Ticket Info
