110 χρόνια μετά…28/5/2013 – 2/6/2013 to check

110 years after the foundation of the Temple of Dance by Isadora and Raymond Duncan(  28/5-2/6/2013) 

On the occasion of the  celebration of the completion of 110 years since the construction of the historical site where the Center is hosted, Duncan Dance Research Center is organizing a series of events that include dance classes, performances, lectures and discussions led by international and local artists and academics.  Although the teaching and representation of Isadora Duncan technique and repertoire is not so present in our programmation, her thought towards dance and its humanistic aspect is a constant behind our momentum, choices and inspiration.  So we consider this celebration as a significant model of rethinking on this emblematic figure of the history of modern dance.

In addition, we believe that this project is an occasion for us to bring a broader audience closer to Isadora and Raymond Duncan’s legacy, work and  philosophy, to offer to the professional dance community new perspectives on them, and to shape new dynamics around revisiting historic figures of modern dance, meet, exchange and discover  more about them  and their era, their dancing, their philosophy.

Barbara Kane (UK)  and Francoise Rageau (FR), two of the most representative European performers, teachers and researchers of the work of Isadora,  will give classes for professionals, children, adults and  3rd age people and present four dances of Isadora, three of the earlier period and one of the last, the Revolutionary,  tracing  the evolution of her thought and code.

Johanna Giot ,a young French actor and researcher, will give  a lecture on Raymond Duncan.

Barbara Kane will give a lecture about the link between ID’s legacy and today

In parallel, a   video installation will be presented, by the Finnish visual artist Minna Hauke.

In the frame of these events, an evening will be organized with 5 works inspired by Isadora  Duncan ‘s ideas as they are presented in ‘the Dance of the Future” (Berlin, 1903), conceived and presented by 5 Greek young choreographers Tasos Karahalios, (Polina Kremasta, Artemis Lambiri,Markella Manoliadi, Yannis Nikolaidis, Vangelis Telonis) . Project coordianator: Maria Gorgia

There will be three short lectures a) on how Duncan got involved against her will in the political conflicts of the time , by Medie Megas, b) questions of nation, origin, that can be raised through the research in this period , by Ioanna Tzartzani c) the pan-european tendency of ancient greek ideal  admiration in the beginning of the 20th century (Steriani Tsintziloni) .

The project will be witnessed by two young choreographers Bill Bultheell and Uri Turkenich who are in the process of creating a performance, the dancer of the future, with Bojana Kunst as dramaturge.  In their approach, the two artists choose Isadora Duncan in order to explore the connection between dance and the museum and the relation between nature and art as well as new kind of temporalities that these juxtapositions and relations can suggest or create.
