After becoming one of the most innovative and exciting figures of 20th-century dance, Isadora Duncan endured the tragic accidental deaths of her two young children. The experience filled her subsequent choreographic works with mournful yearning, spiritual redemption and powerful images of rebirth. Now we present those dances amidst the serene landscape of Green-Wood.

Dancer and choreographer Catherine Gallant has, for over thirty years, choreographed her own dances and worked to preserve and enliven the dances of Isadora Duncan. She and her company, Catherine Gallant/DANCE, will perform Duncan’s “Grande Marche” (1914) set to the music of Schubert, plus other late-period Duncan dances born of her sorrow. The company will then turn to works of hope and rebirth, set to a Nocturne and Polonaise of Chopin, followed by Duncan’s dances of exuberance and light to celebrate the rising of the sun.

$25 for members of Green-Wood / $30 for nonmembers.
