Once Wild: Isadora in Russia

Friday and Saturday, May 3 and 4 at 8 p.m.
Sunday, May 5 at 2 p.m.

Co-Produced by Word Dance Theater and The Davis Performing Arts Center

Never one to miss a revolution, Isadora Duncan arrived in Russia in 1921, determined to ignite its
children’s minds through a new school of dance. Immersed in the spirit of the time, Duncan
created some of her most groundbreaking, soulsearing works. Her story, as dramatic as its
surrounding history, comes to life in this unique collaboration that weaves Duncan’s own dances
with a newly commissioned play, world-premiere choreography, and original score.

Directed by Derek Goldman. Written by Norman Allen. Original music by Dominic Maican. Original choreography by Cynthia Word.

Post-performance reception on May 3 and discussion with artists on May 4.
