Is anyone interested in attending one of the performances of Word Dance Theater at Dance Place on either June 26 or June 27?  The program offers a “multi-media production of the life and times of Isadora Duncan.”

From the Dance Place Web site:

“WDT dancers provide brilliant and authentic reconstructions of Isadora Duncan’s choreography. In this production, the events of Duncan’s life are woven together with eleven of her dances which run the gamut from joy to love to patriotism to mourning and to communism. Ranging from the lyric flow of Water Study to the grounded power of Revolutionary Etude you will understand why Duncan is considered the founder of Modern Dance and one of the greatest artists of the modern epoch. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to experience the life and work of one of America’s greatest geniuses.”
