Like the grounds of the estate, Duncan's vision combined new and old, creating a modernist form of expression while drawing from the classical Greek revival and Italian renaissance. Enjoy a unique backdrop for this wonderful form of dance in these amazing gardens.
Lori Belilove has created a site-specific homage to the gardens with her dancers using Greek mythology as thematic reference points for performances of such dances as The Three Graces, Narcissus, Homage to Apollo, Homage to Dionysus, Tanagra Waltz, and Dance of the Furies. Dressed in Greek, Roman, and Renaissance-themed tunics, the Company will guide you from scene to scene throughout the natural beauty of the gardens.
In addition to the live music and dance, this is a unique opportunity to be captivated by the sights, fragrances, and feel of the gardens at a special time of day: twilight. Enjoy a totally different perspective of the grounds by seeing them illuminated by lanterns and decorated by magical faeries.
"...a rich spectacle that throbs with life, with connections, with provocative commentary on our shared humanity."
