Isadora Duncan is remembered on the 70th anniversary of her death by Patricia Adams, co-artistic director of the Boston-based company Dances by Isadora, and Julie Ince Thompson, who performs a one-woman dance-theater work titled To dance is to live, Isadora Duncan, written by Ruth Whitman. They discuss Duncan's life and career, her ideas, the mixed reception accorded her work during her lifetime, and her influence on dancers today. Thompson presents several in-studio readings from Whitman's play. Video excerpts depict Adams and her company in reconstructions of Duncan's choreography: the Scriabin Etude, Op. 2, no. 1 [sometimes titled Mother in revivals] and the suite Many faces of love (Brahms waltzes, Op. 39, nos. 2, 4, 10, 11, 14). Thompson is seen in two solos choreographed by herself: Lament and One feather, the latter to music by Patricia van Ness
