Lois Flood Will Return to Give Workshop
The Women’s Issues Committee’s program on the life and times of Isadora Duncan, Icon of Freedom for Women, at Park Hall on January 19th, was an exciting and innovative program. Lois Flood provided an intimate portrait of Isadora as a woman, an innovator, an artist, a woman, a mother, a dancer. At intervals, as Lois changed costumes, Marjorie Lynn Wagner read her moving poems, including one mourning the tragic death of Isadora’s children, and a series of quotations about Isadora by her contemporaries including American Poet E.E. Cummings, French sculptor Auguste Rodin and Communist revolutionary Vladimir Lenin – all praising her and her dancing. A standing ovation did not stop the conversation as Lois continued to discuss Isadora with interested members of the audience.
Lois Flood will to return to lead a dance workshop (for everyone interested, with or without dance experience) in Isadora’s dance style and techniques. Watch the Newsletter for details in the coming months
