THE FIRST fully professional in-house production at Bordon’s Phoenix Theatre is a new play about unconventional dancer Isadora Duncan.
Directed by the Phoenix’s director, Rob Allerston, it has been written and choreographed by dance officer Elizabeth Blake who will also perform the piece.
It was extensively researched at the National Resource Centre for Dance based at Guildford’s Surrey University, where details of the production have been archived.
Inspirational and passionate, Isadora was one of the greatest performing artists America has ever produced. Her revolutionary ideas transformed the dance world and her private life scandalised society.
Described by the artist Rodin as “the greatest woman I’ve ever known” and by the New York Times as “the woman who put the Modern into Modern Dance”, she dedicated her life to raising the importance of dance from entertainment to a life-enhancing art form.
The production is set just before Isadora’s death in 1927 and includes re-imagined excerpts of her iconic dances and glimpses of her struggle to reconcile love and art. To book tickets for tonight’s production, call 01420 472664 or visit: www.phoenixarts.co.uk
