Dance Visions NY, Long Island's celebrated dance company, had our first season in Manhattan this past December! It was a three night performance held at University Settlement in the Lower East Side. The program was a natural mix of Isadora Duncan repertoire and original Beth Jucovy works. Below is an excerpt from the program:
"Highlights of this program include rarely-seen works of Isadora Duncan that are particularly relevant in today's political climate: the company's critically celebrated staging of Duncan's "Russian Workers Songs," and two Scriabin Etudes: The Crossing and The Revolutionary Etude, as had been passed on directly by Julia Levien. Other Duncan repertory that will be included are works that highlight Duncan's strong affinity for nature and her philosophy of humanism and hope, also so relevant in todays world. In addition, the concert will feature Beth Jucovy's original works that have Duncan principles at their core. Her most recent work, "Through the Portals" incorporates artist Susan Ruth Cohen's paintings as portals into worlds of color and relationship. The artwork is projected behind and onto the bodies of the dancers. Another Jucovy work "Blurred Boundaries" is a look at responses to death and the sense of existence on different planes."
