IAS Season IV: Ancient World Through Modern Eyes

Modern performing arts have returned consistently to classical antiquity and ancient mythologies to make sense of the contemporary. Join us for world-class drama, ballet, modern dance, philosophy and poetry, as we consider how performance renews itself through consideration of its ancestry. Tickets available through the Lied's Ticket Office.

Founded in 1979, Lori Belilove & The Isadora Duncan Dance Company is the preeminent Isadora Duncan dance company performing in the world today.

Duncan created dances in homage to the Greek gods Apollo and Dionysius, and lesser gods, nymphs and heroes found in ancient Greek mythology. She infused her particular brand of American spirit with her love for the Greeks, convinced that the "Dance of the Future" should adhere to the ideals found in ancient Greek tragedy. Belilove and company bring fresh interpretations to Duncan's works in a cohesive program including a lecture and screening of rare film clips.

Co-presented with the Lied Center. The Interdisciplinary Arts Symposium is sponsored by the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts, presented, in part, by the Lied Center for Performing Arts, and funded, in part, by the Hixson-Lied Endowment.
