Isadora Duncan (1877-1927) is often credited with being the "Mother of Modern Dance." A remarkable and inspirational character, she was an international icon and a champion of women's rights. What is less well-known is that she was a champion for the United States to enter WWI. In this program, which will be part performance and part lecture, Lois Flood will interpret the original choreography of Isadora Duncan and will give a brief narrative of her life and her championship of a "Call to Arms." For this program, Ms. Flood will perform the dance that Duncan performed to the French anthem, "La Marseillaise" in New York City in 1916. Duncan's choreography can only be learned in direct succession from Isadora Duncan herself. Lois Flood is the founder of Diablo Dance Theater and has been performing and teaching the exquisite dances of Isadora Duncan for over 20 years.
