"In a seamless narrative, Seidel weaves accounts of Duncan's life, philosophy, and art through relevant dance scholarship and Seidel's own dance experiences to offer a heart-felt tribute to Duncan, an inspiring gift to fellow Duncan followers, and a compelling invitation to Duncan dancers of the future."--Kimerer L. LaMothe, author of Why We Dance: A Philosophy of Bodily Becoming and Nietzsche's Dancers: Isadora Duncan, Martha Graham, and the Revaluation of Christian Values.
Part artistic study, part intimate memoir, this book illuminates the technique and repertory of American dancer Isadora Duncan (1877-1927) and her enduring legacy from the perspective of an artist and scholar who has reconstructed and performed her work for 35 years. Providing an overview of modern activities and trends in the teaching and performance of Duncan's dance, the author describes her own work directing The Isadora Duncan Dance Ensemble, the company that sought to implement Duncan's mission to create not a school of dance but "a school of life."
