In the early 20th century, Isadora Duncan's innovative dances changed the art world forever. In 1914, after losing her two young children to drowning, Duncan poured her grief into dance. She created her Grande Marche and other dances expressing grief, mortality, and mourning, as well as remembrance and rebirth. Catherine Gallant will perform examples of these dances among Green-Wood's landscape with live, improvised music by the Open Music Ensemble, before discussing Duncan's process and her outpouring of grief through her art.
