Isadora Duncan

A woman who danced ahead of her time, a feminist who, at the end of the 19th century, kissed then restrictive conventions like the corset and pointe shoes goodbye, a dancer of what is called ‘Apollonian beauty’. That was Isadora Duncan (1877-1927), who introduced modern dance to the world with overwhelming success. What happens when someone who has succeeded in turning dance upside down a century after Duncan’s revolution confronts today’s conventions to remember the pioneer of days gone by? It promises a slightly different vantage point. After all, French choreographer Jérôme Bel has repeatedly proven to be capable of a surprise, and, like Duncan, has been accused of producing a kind of ‘non-dance’. The piece is his portrait of a visionary dance-maker and romantic figure who has fought with both passion and conviction for the freedom, spontaneity and naturalness of expression.
