Untermyer Performing Arts Council’s World Fest 2017


The Art of Isadora

Performed by Lori Belilove and The Isadora Duncan Dance Company


7:30 p.m. Saturday, August 20th 2016 at Historic Untermyer Park

The Untermyer Performing Arts Council is presenting The Art of Isadora, performed by Lori Belilove and The Isadora Duncan Dance Company at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, August 27th at Untermyer Park.

Lori Belilove & The Isadora Duncan Dance Company is the resident performing troupe of The Isadora Duncan Dance Foundation based in New York City. Under the artistic direction of Lori Belilove, the Company performs more than 80 authentic dances that highlight the unique qualities of Isadora Duncan’s repertoire, from the early lyrical pieces to the tragic solos, all with a purity of style and excellence of movement hailed by the international press. This all female company is a spirited ensemble of highly trained and educated dancers distinguished by their deeply felt connection to the art of Isadora and to Artistic Director Lori Belilove´s interpretive vision and aesthetic sensibility. As a creative team, the troupe delves into the creation of new works, as it explores ways to deliver the essence of Duncan into the 21st Century.

The Company has toured widely in the United States and Canada, Mexico, South America, Russia, South Korea, and throughout Europe. Last year, the Company performed for the first time in Shenzhen, China.
