No verified record of dancer Isadora Duncan exists - only her words.
An unverified fragment of a woman dancing in front of the sea is presented
as Isadora dancing on the Parthenon.
Isadora is an exploration of time and place. The fictional place is presented as the Parthenon (as in the original film footage of Isadora) : a blurring of reality. In the film the narrator's voice changes gender as a chorus using words from the diary of Isadora: her memory describes an experience of what Freud later calls Derealisation, recalled during his own transcendent experience visiting the Parthenon. Transfixed by the power of the image and the disconnect from reality, her words fragile from the time of the grand tour where the European took the place as their own.
