Isadora Duncan, c.1906 There were no poses and movement was mainly undulating and fluid, round and more symmetric than asymmetric. Her hands and fingers could take many different positions, according to the intensity of the expression, but would never follow preconceived or artificial shapes. The face and neck were mobile and expressive; the torso was freed completely and flexible. She’d lean, kneel and fall with lilting movements.
