  • Overview
    A one-woman show that presents the early-20th-century American dance pioneer Isadora Duncan through her letters to her lover, the English theatre director-designer Edward ("Teddy") Gordon Craig, as she endlessly toured Europe and South America with her own one-woman show. Dances based on archive of Duncan's free-flowing, barefoot style (which single-handedly laid the foundations of modern dance), are skilfully interleaved with these episodic monologues.
