Coleman Auditorium

$12 advance, $5 more day of; youth 17 & under free

A pas de deux between the past and the present: the choreography and techniques of Isadora Duncan, whom many dub “the mother of modern dance” are interpreted and performed by Lois Flood, a dancer and visionary in her own right.

Lois Flood

Born in 1877 in San Francisco, Isadora Duncan redefined Western dance, breaking out of the ballet mold and helping to birth an art form full of grit and realism; social responsibility and dynamics.

Flood, born nearly a century later, began her career in ballet and expanded to Duncan Dance from there, and she has since performed many of Duncan’s pieces, the choreography of which is passed down like heirlooms through generations of teachers and students. “Isadora’s dances are expressions of passion, strength, grief, defiance, and grace,” Flood states, “inspired by natural movement and set to exquisite classical music.”

Echoing Duncan’s belief that dance not be withheld for the elite, this performance is intended for audiences of all ages and with all levels of dance knowledge and appreciation.
