Why I didn't Put It Down:
"She looked pink. Talked Red. Acted Scarlet."
- American reporter describes Isadora Duncan.
Lori Belilove, founder of the Isadora Duncan Dance Foundation and Company wrote the introduction and talks about how this is a way to introduce people to Isadora Duncan, who is the Mother of Modern dance. She also mentions the authenticity of the biography even though it is a graphic novel. Isadora Duncan was so free and self-assured and confident and it is illustrated wonderfully by Sabrina Jones fluid pen/brush strokes. Also, on page 29, Jones includes Duncan's manifesto on dance which you can read a version of it here.
the dancer of the future will not revive the antique dance,
she will not dance as a nymph, fairy, or coquette,
but as a woman in her purest expression...
- Isadora Duncan
Who Would I Recommend This To: Students interested in dance, students with a biography project, people looking for a story about a very independent inspiring person.
