Through the portals is a glimpse into a moment, a transient world of color and relationship- before it dissolves... The work depicts a world of matter and energy, symbolized through color. The colors individuate, interact and evolve. The piece utilizes artwork from Susan Ruth Cohen's Finding the Song as the backdrop and the portals. These excerpts were taken from the piece performed at Bryant Library Dec. 6, 2015.
Excerpts of dances from Dance Visions NY's program: The Divine Flame: the life times inspirations and dances of Isadora Duncan from performance at Jericho Library, January 2016.
In a mini-universe of its own, colors and energy are let loose in a flurry of expression and movement. Sections include: Waves/Emerging, Strings/Bonding, Random/Locomoting, Disintegration and Aftermath.
Dance Visions in Dreamscape at the Long Island Children's Museum. This original full length work depicts glimpses into the dream state. The program depicts a night’s dreams and the performance flows as dreams do. This video is from 2nd dream series- Tidal waves into Alice in Wonderland.
Blurred Boundaries expresses responses to death as well as the concept of worlds and people existing on different planes. In this piece, the boundaries of these different worlds are blurred and parallels and connections between the worlds are sensed and finally realized.
Excerpts from Future/Past/Present: Characters form the future embody seven present day women and experience their views and thoughts.
Alone (do you hear us) consists of 3 solos performed within spheres and orbits. Movement motifs and themes are shared but each has individualized variants. The music shares these concepts, with songs that are overlaid. The dancers each must hear their own music exclusively through the mix and the focus they must have in order to carry out their part is in fact a major theme of the piece.
Dance Visions NY performs Isadora Duncan repertory for Old Westbury Gardens' Midsummer Night 2012. The works were individually staged for each garden and include repertory of mythology, classical art and nature
Excerpts from ColorSong Universe. This multi-disciplinary work depicts a universe of matter and relationships; ranging from the cosmos to the subatomic. When a dancer flippantly disassembles a paper sculpture, havoc ensues. Colors and energy are let loose in a flurry of expression and movement.
On the grounds of the Nassau County Museum of Art, Dance Visions NY in MidSummer Magic: Zeus' Garden. Isadora Duncan repertory- dances of Greek mythology, classical art and nature staged by Beth Jucovy.
Excerpts from a performance of Emergence. The work reflects the concept of systems that merge, break down and reform. This concept is illustrated with allusions to biology, physics and human society. This basic theme forms the structure of both the individual sections and also the work as a whole.
In this two-part work set to alternate versions of “St. Louis Woman,” a man leaves a woman for another, who betrays him in turn. In the first section three dancers, representing the woman he leaves, intimate a Greek chorus telling the story as they express her pain. As the piece builds dynamically in the second section, each character experiences a personal sense of loss. The second woman comes back, but no one cares; inevitably she is like the others. Ultimately everyone is alone.
