Isadora at Lincoln Center
We are thrilled to announce that Artistic Director Lori Belilove has been invited by Paul Taylor to set Dances of Isadora at The David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center! The dates: March 18, 21, 22, and 24, 2018 as part of Paul Taylor American Modern Dance’s ICON Series. The dancer: Sara Mearns, Principal Dancer at New York City Ballet.
Off the heels of Lori and Sara’s collaboration with The Company’s performance at The Joyce Theater in June 2017, Lori will continue creating with Sara, with an expanded 25-minute solo.
Alastair Macaulay of The New York Times wrote that Ms. Mearns’s “collaboration with Ms. Belilove is the most important occasion to date of a ballet star working directly with the Duncan legacy.”
The project is commissioned and produced by Paul Taylor American Modern Dance at The David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center. You can purchase tickets here. For March 24th Benefit tickets, including orchestra seating and champagne toast in private patron lounge, call the IDDF at 212-691-5040.
