Lori Belilove & Isadora Duncan Dance Company
The Isadora Duncan Dance Company, directed by Lori Belilove, the pre-eminent Isadora Duncan Dance company performing today, will honor their namesake, revolutionary dancer Isadora Duncan and Victorian rebel photographer Alice Austen, both 20th century Icons of freedom, in a program of dances choreographed by Isadora Duncan. The outdoor performance will be on the grounds of the Alice Austen House; a location featuring a view that stretches from the Statue of Liberty to lower Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Verrazano Bridge on September 14th.
The Company and guest dancers will perform solos and group works from the Duncan repertory centered on themes of nature, a focus that Duncan shared with Alice Austen. The program will unfold the life and art of the extraordinary dancer with sensational dancing, delighting audiences of all ages. Bring your friends and a picnic, blanket and/or chairs and enjoy an early evening of nature and dance overlooking the New York harbor. $10 donation at the gate.
Bring your own blanket or chair, even a picnic! The performance will be canceled in the event of rain. The event will start at 6 pm.
The Alice Austen House is handicap accessible with a wheelchair ramp in the rear of the house.
This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
