Hamadryad

Hamadryad

The sound of a lone flutist practicing Debussy’s Syrinx heard while walking through a forest in 1948, inspired the American choreographer Jean Erdman to create Hamadryad, a vision of a passionate wood nymph. In this dance fantasy directors, Nancy Allison and Paul Allman follow Bessie Award-winning dancer, Miki Orihara from the streets of Manhattan into the studio where she rehearses the iconic solo enchanting herself back into the very forests in Woodstock, NY where the dance was first imagined.
