Dance Visions NY, under the direction of Beth Jucovy, honors the legendary choreographer Isadora Duncan’s dances, aesthetics, and techniques, which were created in the early 20th century – the very same era in which the Guggenheim Estate was formed. Through presentation of the authentic Duncan works as passed on by Jucovy’s second-generation mentors as well as the presentation of original works influenced by Duncan principles, the company keeps the legacy of Isadora Duncan strong and relevant in our current world.
The company of 16 dancers will perform a combination of Duncan’s works as well as original site-specific contemporary works in Hempstead House and outside in the Rose Garden.
“What mattered in Isadora’s Hellenic dances was not the Greek themes or the gauzy costumes, but the uninhibited vitality, the sense of glorious nakedness.”
– Lewis Mumford, Cultural Critic, 1905
