The Isadora Duncan International Symposium is delighted to facilitate the development of several project committees within the larger Isadora Duncan Dance community. As of February 2014, these project committees include:
Isadora Duncan Archive Committee
Chair: Valerie Durham
Committee Members: Catherine Gallant, Mary Ruth Hammond, Barbara Kane, Yi-Hsin Lin, Janaea Rose Lyn, Pattee Russell Curry, Mary Sano, Vicky Sloat
Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org Please put “Isadora Duncan Archive” in the subject line
Stated Objective: To create a digital archive of the historical, philosophical, stylistic and choreographic legacy of modern dance pioneer, Isadora Duncan, and subsequent generations of Duncan practitioners. The Isadora Duncan Archive is intended to encourage the collaborative sharing of content in a fully protected and credited format. We envision that many dancers, researchers, scholars and artists will greatly benefit from the ability to centrally access these materials; and that this effort will further Isadora’s stated intention that her work will be carried on and further developed by others.
