Dance Visions

August 19 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

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. The company of 16 dancers will perform a combination of Duncan’s works as well as original site-specific contemporary works.

“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

This program is made possible in part with funds from the Decentralization Program, a re-grant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and is administered by The Huntington Arts Council, Inc.
