now, at this precise moment, ARTE is showing a documentary on Isadora Duncan;

 

with feet we march, with feet we walk, with feet we run, with feet we dance, some dance truly and in that they live and make others live

Pioneer of modern dance Isadora Duncan, photographed in New York by Arnold Genthe in 1916-1918. My colorization of a picture in the Library of Congress archive.

"Angela Isadora Duncan (May 26, 1877 or May 27, 1878 – September 14, 1927) was an American dancer who performed to great acclaim throughout Europe. Born and raised in California, she lived and danced in Western Europe and the Soviet Union from the age of 22 until her tragic death at age 50 when her scarf became entangled in the wheels and axle of the car in which she was riding in Nice, France." --

"In 1911, the French fashion designer Paul Poiret rented a mansion — Pavillon du Butard in La Celle-Saint-Cloud — and threw lavish parties, including one of the more famous grandes fêtes, La fête de Bacchus on June 20, 1912, re-creating the Bacchanalia hosted by Louis XIV at Versailles. Isadora Duncan, wearing a Greek evening gown designed by Poiret, danced on tables among 300 guests; 900 bottles of champagne were consumed until the first light of day."

Friends from the 70s –20

I rediscovered this portrait taken of a friend and colleague in Plymouth in 1976. It was set up by Marie who recognised her beauty though she normally dressed down in a very conservative, practical way and wore no make-up with her hair tied back. So one evening M persuaded her to have an "Isadora Duncan" style make-over before dinner and I took this photo. Both she (and even more her husband) were absolutely delighted with the effect - and after that she started to dress in a much more feminine and glamorous way, even at work.

 

It's interesting - and I have seen it many times since - how one photo session can positively change someone's self-image quite profoundly.

Isadora Duncan with Serge Jessinin on Street

(Original Caption) Photo of Isadora Duncan with her young husband, the Russian poet Serge Yessenin, on Unter Den Linden in Berlin. Isadora says It is my first husband and we are as happy as any couple could be. Both are expected in America in October when Miss Duncan will dance with her 23 Russian children from her Moscow school.

Famous American dancer, Isadora Duncan, was killed while riding in her open air car near Nice, FR. Her long scarf, as depicted in this mascot, got caught in a wheel spoke and broke her neck.

We spent a whole day at the fabulous Cimetière du Père-Lachaise. The property was laid out for a cemetery in the beginning of the nineteenth century. At that time, with great fanfare, the transfer of the remains of La Fontaine and Molière were organized to attract other burials to this rather remote area. There is an almost endless list of well-know inhabitants in this sprawling city of the dead. Isadora Duncan is here somewhere, though we never found her.

PAUL COLIN (1892-1986) "It has all the characteristics of Colin's fine touch, as the angular shape of the piano cuts through the dancer's body to give us music-and-dance vibrations. Isadora Duncan, the famed dancer, was tragically killed in an accident in 1927. It is not clear just exactly who is represented in this poster: she had several adopted daughters and her sister, Elizabeth, carried on her work after her death—possibly she is the 'Lisa' of the poster. At any rate, Isadora, one of the first Western dancers to dance barefooted and appear on stage without tights in what she termed a 'free dance' style, would have approved of this treatment by Colin. It embodies her spirit, if not her person" (Colin, p. 8). Rare!! #isadoraduncan

\ «Работа обладает всеми характеристиками тонкого прикосновения Колина, поскольку угловатая форма пианино прорезает тело танцора, чтобы передать нам музыкальные и танцевальные вибрации. Айседора Дункан, знаменитая танцовщица, трагически погибла в результате несчастного случая в 1927 году, и неясно, кто именно изображен на этом плакате: у нее было несколько приемных дочерей, а ее сестра Элизабет продолжила свою работу после ее смерти - возможно, на плакате Лиза. Во всяком случае, Айседора, одна из первых западных танцоров, которые танцевали босиком и появлялись на сцене без трико, в стиле, который она назвала «свободным танцем», одобрила бы такое обращение Колина. Оно олицетворяет ее дух, если не ее личность» (Колин, стр. 8). Раритет!!

 

Isadora Duncan accueillie à Bellevue (Isadora Duncan welcomed to Bellevue) par W. Rummel

Cette photo historique est attribuée à Henri Manuel (1874-1947) par la bibliothèque-musée de l'Opéra ce que le musée Rodin conteste apparemment puisque, selon le cartel du musée, le nom du photographe est qualifié d'anonyme. (source : Catalogue de l'exposition "Isadora Duncan, une sculpture vivante", musée Bourdelle, 2009-2010)

 

La photographie a été prise au moment où Isadora Duncan

a été contrainte de vendre l'hôtel de Bellevue à l'Etat qui y a implanté les services de la direction des recherches scientifiques et des inventions, devenu le CNRS en 1939.

 

L'hôtel de Bellevue a abrité entre 1913 et 1914 l'école de danse fondée par Isadora Duncan qu'elle avait appelé le Dyonision. C'est Eugène Singer qui l'avait acheté et offert à Isadora Duncan. Auguste Rodin qui s'était installé à Meudon dans la villa des Brillants était un voisin et est venu lui rendre visite comme l'attestent les mémoires d'Isadora Duncan et le livre d'or de l'école. Dès 1914, l'hôtel a été transformé temporairement en hôpital militaire.

 

Dans les années 1970, on pouvait encore voir sur les portes des ascenseurs de ce bâtiment qui abritait l'administration du CNRS, le blason liant les initiales d'Eugène Singer et d'Isadora Duncan.

Another one from the family album. Auntie Isopoda discovered 'girl power' about a century before the Spice Girls, gaining huge popularity for her unique 'classical' dancing while wearing little more than an oversized chiffon scarf. Besieged by admirers, she lived a life of unrestrained scandalousness and left a trail of broken marriages in her wake.

 

Unfortunately, her preferred diet of elderflower champagne and pork pies took it's toll. By the age of 40 she found her power had inexplicably waned and thanks to her lavish lifestyle, lurched from one financial disaster to another. None of this slowed her down and she continued to dance until her untimely end in a freak accident involving eight yards of Belgian lace and an industrial bacon slicer.
