A tribute to American dance pioneer and legend Isadora Duncan will be held on Saturday, May 31 (5pm) outdoors at Brooklyn's historic Green-Wood Cemetery.

Hosted by the Green-Wood Historic Fund, this special event features a performance by Catherine Gallant and her troupe, Catherine Gallant/DANCE, of some of Duncan’s most memorable works--"the mournful Grande Marche (1914) set to the music of Schubert, as well as late-period dances evoking sorrow, hope, and rebirth set to Chopin. The performance will conclude with dances of exuberance and light."

Meet inside Green-Wood's main gate (25th Street at 5th Avenue, Brooklyn).
