Description

A graphic biography of the pioneering, free-spirited "Mother of Modern Dance"

In 1899, performing in the drawing rooms of London's elite, Isadora Duncan (1877-1927) was already laying the foundations for modern dance. Her performances were visceral, free-flowing, and expressive; she danced barefoot. The 22-year-old from California was shattering the conventions of traditional ballet and, in doing so, enchanting high society.

In Isadora, Julie Birmant and Cl�ment Oubrerie capture the astonishing life and scandalous times of the so-called "Mother of Modern Dance" from her arrival in Europe to her tragic death in 1927. This extraordinary graphic novel spans Duncan's meetings with Auguste Rodin and Loie Fuller, her dazzling on-stage career, and the development of a style of dance--inspired by natural forms and Greek sculpture--that would become her enduring legacy.
