When She Danced
It's Paris, 1923 at the home of Isadora Duncan. The "Mother of Modern Dance" is in decline. The middle-aged American expatriate scrounges for financial support to start a dance school in Italy. She hosts a dinner for a man she believes to be an Italian diplomat who can help her finance her dream. Also in attendance are the maid who speaks only French, a 19-year-old Greek piano prodigy, a prim Russian émigré who has signed on as Duncan's translator, an American friend, and a Swedish teenager. The dinner party proves to be a true "Tower of Babel" as well as an evening of revelations, both funny and poignant.
