Duncan Dance South
Many Faces of Love & New Works
Hattiesburg Arts Council

Saturday, February 17th at 5pm- FREE

723 Main Street, Hattiesburg, MS | @duncandancesouth

This concert is a collaboration between legacy Isadora Duncan dance artist Meg Brooker and Houston-based pianist Sherry Cheng. Brooker and Cheng's artistic collaboration originated in Houston, Texas, through work with Misha Penton's Divergence Vocal Theatre, and extended to the Noyes School of Rhythm in Portland, CT, where Cheng has served as resident pianist. The works on this program include selections from Béla Bartók, Frédéric Chopin, Edvard Grieg, Franz Liszt, and Sergei Prokofiev and will conclude with the Johannes Brahms' Op. 39 waltzes, choreographed by early modern dance artist Isadora Duncan as "The Many Faces of Love." Dancers on this program have been trained in both Duncan dance and in the work of Florence Fleming Noyes, and the Noyes influence is most evident in the new works and in structured improvisations.
