In honor of International Women’s History Month, OCA presents our annual celebration of the life and art of California Native Daughter and legendary dancer Isadora Duncan. Director and solo dancer Lois Flood (Diablo Dance Theater) movingly interprets the original choreography of Isadora Duncan and her classical aesthetic dance movement. She brings the ‘Mother of Modern dance’ to dramatic life with flowing classical costumes and historical narration about Isadora’s many contributions as a dancer, writer, political activist and revolutionary feminist. She brings a new set of dances this year, inspired by natural movement, with accompanying recordings of classical music by Chopin, Schubert, Gluck, and others. www.diablodancetheater.com
Don’t miss this unique dance performance and history lesson about the revolutionary dancer and feminist who boldly rejected the cultural and legal restrictions placed on women in the early 1900’s! The dancer often leads the audience in movements that are ‘Isadora-esque’, and her presentation is up close and personal for the audience.
