Isadora Duncan was an American pioneer of concert dance at the turn of the 20th century, a self-styled revolutionary, whose innovative free-spirited style broke with the dominant rigidity of ballet and led to what is now called modern or contemporary dance. Dance NOW! Miami (DNM), one of the leading companies in Florida, will reconstruct four essential works of Duncan’s for their annual Masterpiece In Motion series, at their Program II Contemporanea, along with featuring guest company Italy’s Opus Ballet, Saturday, March 21, at 8:30 pm, at the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center.
The evening also features guest company Opus Ballet, from Florence, Italy, one of Italy’s rising contemporary dance troupes, on their first U.S. tour. They will share the stage as part of the ongoing Dance NOW! Miami Bridges Project. DNM was in residence in Italy and collaborated with Opus Ballet last spring, where they performed the original Bridges NOT Walls. This time both companies will be performing in Opus Ballet’s original Caravan, a commentary on the European crisis with migration and culture. “To bring a company from Italy here to South Florida, to partner with them, means so much to me, having been raised in Italy and now having lived here for decades,” says Dance Now Miami Co-Artistic Director Diego Salterini. Additional work from each company will round out the program.
