‘I dreamed of a different dance’
Isadora Duncan’s danced revolution

This chapter discusses dance pioneer’s Isadora Duncan’s work as a political intervention. The chapter presents Duncan’s ties to ideological and political entanglements in their historical context. The chapter elaborates the significance of Duncan’s choreographic revolution as well as its reception within the world of modern dance in the 20th century. The chapter argues that Duncan laid the foundations for the interpretation of the political power of dance independently of words.
