Isadora's Water Study Repertory Workshop
Company: Lori Belilove & The Isadora Duncan Dance Company
Location: Virtual, NY
Virtual Water Study Repertory Workshop, September 19th, 2021
Sunday September 19th, 12PM – 3PM EST
This three hour workshop will include a warm-up, all phrases from the dance, historical context, and inspiring videos and imagery.
Set to a short Schubert Waltz created ca.1914 for the Isadorables (Isadora’s company), this workshop includes a review of the Duncan waltz, focused warm-up to execute phrases from the dance, along with historical context, and inspiring videos and imagery sourced from nature and The Isadora Duncan Foundation Archives.
In learning Duncan repertory Belilove goes beyond the movements or “steps” to enrich the experience with the narrative behind the dance including references to other repertory pieces and choreographers.
From Lori Belilove, “I chose to share this particular repertory piece, as the Water Study explores Duncan’s unique use of weight and musicality. Unlike many of Duncan’s dances that reference Classical Greek influence, this dance, differently, draws its inspiration from the movement of water, an elemental force of nature… besides the fact that we love water, and do not want these summer months to end!”
