Depicting a journey following a river from its source in caves all the way to the mouth of the ocean, "Morning Afternoon Evening" illustrates the life cycle of an idea, an individual, a culture, humanity, a universe. Jucovy's artwork, created for 8 dancers and one actor, encompasses timeless and timely themes of destruction leading to creation, darkness to light, endings to beginnings. Particularly relevant at this time, considering the world situation, Jucovy and company encourage audiences to derive personal meaning from this multi-layered work.
Dance Visions NY presents Isadora Duncan repertory as well as contemporary works inspired by the aesthetic. These often-interdisciplinary works incorporate timeless themes as well as perspectives of our current times. Inspired by words, visual art and music, Beth Jucovy’s works merge these disciplines with dance, resulting in a holistic experience for audiences. The company continually explores our shared humanity and strives to encourage audiences to engage with the challenges we face in today’s world.
