Razvan Mazilu-directed play in Greece

The first showing of the theater production ‘When Isadora danced’ took place at the Meli Theater in Athens on October 15, 2009. The new play bearing the trademark of stage director and choreographer Razvan Mazilu, draws from the play ‘When she danced’ written by celebrated American playwright Martin Sherman. The play, a tragicomedy about the condition of the artist, brings back the famous dancer Isadora Duncan back into the limelight, a precursor of contemporary dancing. The play focuses on her twilight years and her love story with Russian poet Sergey Esenin. For the Romanian artist, a show about Isadora Duncan, to whom contemporary dance owes so much, is an extraordinary opportunity. ‘I set out to celebrate Isadora Duncan as a symbol of the freeing spirit, of absolute artistic freedom, not just an emblematic figure of contemporary dancing.’ Dimitra Hatoupi and David Maltese, two of Greece’s most prominent actors, play the roles of Isadora Duncan and Sergey Esenin. Antonis Halkis is in charge of scenography.
