Abstract:

Interview with Gemze de Lappe, a dancer, director, and teacher with credits on the ballet and Broadway stages. She reminisces about her dance training with Irma Duncan and Anna Duncan, Isadora Duncan's adopted daughters; the special qualities and benefits of Duncan technique; and the changing status of Duncan dancing over the years. She also looks back upon her experiences as a student and dancer with ballet choreographer Michel Fokine, whose style was compatible with Duncan's, and with Agnes de Mille, who incorporated Duncan's Three Graces into Conversations about the dance, her historical overview performance. The interview is intercut with performance footage and a demonstration of Duncan technique with a voice-over discussion in which de Lappe notes the fine points of the movements being performed, clarifying the impetus and imagery motivating them, and describing their variations and appearances in various Duncan dances.
