Description

Known by many as the greatest dancer of her time, Isadora Duncan was the matriarch of creative self-expression. A pioneer in the dance world and the women's movement, her name is synonymous with originality, spontaneity and intrigue. The first woman to break simultaneously the barriers of art, love, fashion, sex, religion and marriage, Dorothy Parker christened her "Duncan disorderly", praising her as "magnificent, generous, gallant and fated". This biography aims to do justice to the life of this unforgettable and exceptional woman. Duncan's was a life marked by tragedy - she never recovered from the accidental drowning of her two small children and was plagued by alcoholism. She died in a car accident in 1927; her scarf becoming entangled in the wheel of her car during a joy ride on the French Riviera and strangling her. "Isadora" aims to unshroud the mystery behind this passionate artist and tell the most accurate account of her life yet.
