An Evening with Isadora Duncan: Danced by Lois Ann Flood

The Art, Music and Recreation Center of the San Francisco Public Library is pleased to present this program on
Thursday, May 24th from 6-7:30.


Isadora Duncan was the most famous dancer-choreographer performing in the early 20th century. She mesmerized her audiences by combining natural, free movement with ballet. Isadora was an icon of the art and culture of her times—she personified the period’s fascination with all things Greek, was a symbol of women’s emancipation, and influenced fashion and dance throughout the world. This performance will give insight into what all the fuss was about. 

Lois Ann Flood is the founder of Diablo Dance Theater. She has been performing the exquisite dances of Isadora Duncan for over 20 years. Her interpretations are recognized for their dynamic and expressive qualities.  She will be accompanied by narrator Karen Elise, who will talk about Isadora’s life and times.
