The French choreographer Jérôme Bel continues the series of portraits he began in 2004 with his solo for the dancer and teacher Elizabeth Schwartz. In “Isadora Duncan” he portrays a deceased artist for the first time, using her autobiographical book “My Life”. In the figure of Isadora Duncan, he discovers a visionary choreographer who laid the foundations for modern dance in her great freedom of expression and preference for spontaneity and naturalness. By ecological choice R.B. / Jérôme Bel company doesn’t travel by plane, therefore a version of the piece is simultaneously created in New York, by Skype, with the dancer Catherine Gallant.
