Jérôme Bel

Isadora Duncan

Duration 60 Min

Sprache: Audio Description  English with German surtitles 

The French choreographer Jérôme Bel continues the series of portraits he began in 2004 with his solo for the dancer and teacher Elizabeth Schwartz. In “Isadora Duncan” he portrays a deceased artist for the first time, using her autobiographical book “My Life”. In the figure of Isadora Duncan, he discovers a visionary choreographer who laid the foundations for modern dance in her great freedom of expression and preference for spontaneity and naturalness. By ecological choice R.B. / Jérôme Bel company doesn’t travel by plane, therefore a version of the piece is simultaneously created in New York, by Skype, with the dancer Catherine Gallant.
