Conference Josep Clarà i Isadora Duncan: passion for dance

Saturday 14, November, 2020 18 h. - Saturday 14, November, 2020
Can Mario Museum, Palafrugell


Conference by: Núria Aragonès and Cristina Rodríguez Samaniego

“I have felt deep emotions of infinite art”, writes Josep Clarà on returning from a private evening at Isadora Duncan’s apartment in Paris, in November 1912. One cannot understand a large part of Clarà’s work without exploring the fascination the sculptor held for the world of modern dance, especially its great female dancers such as Isadora Duncan, Fornarina, Tórtola Valencia and the Catalan dancer Àurea de Sarrà, with whom he had a relationship. Some of his sculptures were inspired by, and featured, Isadora Duncan, such as La Dansarina, and also the lively drawing of the Marxa militar de Schubert and La bacanal de Tannhäuser. The meeting in Paris between the sculptor from Olot and the north-American dancer marked the beginning of a heartfelt and strong friendship which affected both Clarà’s life and work, as he recounts in his personal diaries which are full of impressive words of eulogy and emotion for the revolutionary dancer, who had just reached the height of her fame during those years.

In this visit we will delve into the details on that fruitful relationship between two great artistic characters of the time, immersed in the tumultuous Parisian artistic scene at the end of the Belle Époque.
