Fast Forward at Dixon place

Nov. 12, 2019, 7:30 p.m.

Dixon Place, 161A Chrystie Street, between Rivington and Delancey Streets., NYC

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.

I Hear America Singing, I See America Dancing, in Long Beach

Nov. 24, 2019, 2:30 p.m.

Long Beach Library, 111 W Park Ave., Long Beach NY

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. 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.
