Notes

Nadia Chilkovsky Nahumck

Reference: Nahumck, Nadia Chilkovsky. Isadora Duncan: The Dances. Washington DC: The National Museum of Women in the Arts, 1994.

Waltz No. 14 suggests a temper tantrum. The dancer's flailing about in sudden changes of direction is accented by foot stamping and fists beating the air, as in the Gluck Dance of the Furies, though not so violently. There is a sense of ubiquity in the dance.
