Isadora event


Celebrating its tenth anniversary, Dances by Isadora, a Massachusetts-based dance company dedicated to preserving the repertoire and technique of Isadora Duncan (1878-1927), returns to MIT on Friday and Saturday, June 13-14, at 8pm in Kresge Little Theater.

Joining the company will be five members of MIT's Dance Troupe: graduate students Mary Krasovec (EAPS) and Nicole Morgan (physics); Alisha Sieminski and Lara Suh, who will be seniors in chemical engineering and mechanical engineering, respectively; and Hillary Ross, administrative assistant at the Sloan School. Russian pianist Galina Sokolova and vocalist Jennifer Sue Lanni, a graduate student in biology, will provide accompaniment, and actress Paula Plum will reprise her portrayal of Duncan, reading excerpts from her writings and speeches.

The concert is funded by a grant from the Council for the Arts at MIT. Tickets are $10, or $7 for seniors and students. Info/reservations: Pat Adams, (508) 543-3028.
