Heidi Duckler Dance Announces A Call for Artists

Los Angeles-based performance company Heidi Duckler Dance (HDD) announces a call for artists to participate in their beloved Ebb & Flow festival at the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook in Culver City, California on Saturday, September 10 and Sunday, September 11, 2022.  Ebb & Flow is a free, site-specific community festival of talented local artists integrating dance, visual arts, music, and technology, focusing on climate change and its impact on the environment and our health.

They are looking for 7 experienced art makers of varying disciplines (performance art, visual art, design, theater, mixed media, choreography, music and poetry) to create installations and performances of 8-10 minutes duration that explore the relationship between nature, humanity, and our changing environment. Audiences will walk on a designated trail and stop to observe the situated offerings. Works will be performed and viewed multiple times in a row to account for this structure. 

Artists will receive a set stipend for their work and participation, plus a bonus from a fundraiser hosted by Heidi Duckler Dance. Heidi Duckler Dance will provide audio production equipment and market the event in a collaborative spirit. This is the third year of this successful festival and they welcome people from all disciplines and cultures who are interested in exploring this significant topic.

Initially founded in 1985, Heidi Duckler Dance (HDD) is a pioneer in producing interdisciplinary performances. The company develops and rehearses each multi-sensory experience in the site where the work is performed. HDD advances social equity in under-resourced communities by providing opportunities for audience members and students to interact with meaningful spaces, both public and private, that they may not otherwise have access to. These innovative experiences allow participants to view these places, and their communities, in new and interesting ways.

Applications for Ebb & Flow are due this Friday, July 29th at 11:59 pm, and final selections will be announced the week of August 8th. There will be a mandatory artist gathering/lunch on August 21st, time TBD, and a mandatory technical rehearsal on September 9th, time TBD.
