    “Lady MacMillan has chosen still to convey Isadora’s life story from beginning to end, and the interspersing of film footage, both archive and modern, and Nicola McAuliffe’s voice-over of Duncan’s own words, make the first 20 minutes especially ve…

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 13 March 2009Performance March 2009

    ‘Liedtke possessed an idiosyncratic, piercing comic eye and she knew how to translate emotion into dance. If only she had been given time, she would surely have used her gifts to remarkable effect.’

    Press Review Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Friday 13 March 2009Performance In rep 11, 12, 18, 20 & 21 March.09

    On Isadora “even now, cut down to a single, 61-minute act, with various nips, tucks and tweaks, it still doesn’t quite work. On the up side, this account of her life aims high and is danced with love, especially by Tamara Rojo as Isadora, Edward Watson as her…
