In 1903 Isadora Duncan and her family arrived in Athens, where they resolved to remain and establish a place for dance to be experienced in a fluid relationship with everyday living. Designed according to the specifications of the ancient Mycenaean mansion, this building is one of the very few venues worldwide to have been created specifically for dance. One hundred years later, it is still serving this purpose and is the realization of the Duncans’ utopian vision. At the center, Kostas Tsioukas, a dancer and choreographer from Athens, is teaching dance that supports his work Romantic Outburst One, with school students acting as volunteer performers.
