Heidi Duckler Dance Presents Ebb & Flow: Chinatown

Posted on: 6/3/2019 6:00AM

Ebb & Flow: Chinatown is a free, site-specific community festival of local artists at the Los Angeles State Historic Park which integrates dance, visual arts, music and technology to explore climate change, its impact on the environment and our health. The day begins with free public dance workshops for all ages and abilities, booths from local artists, and opportunities to engage in environmental and wellness activities from community organizations. The festival also includes daytime community performances by Salesian Boys & Girls Club, David Calderon, East Wind Foundation for Youth and Shaolin Temple Cultural Center U.S.A.

 

Curated by Heidi Duckler Dance, the weekend event will feature site-specific performances by diverse local artists from neighboring communities. Choreographers featured in the event will present their new works on HDD’s fish sculpture. HDD collaborated with architect Alex Ward to design and build a 15-foot steel fish sculpture that acts as an interactive public art piece. The sculpture has moved throughout the Los Angeles area, from Downtown LA’s Pershing Square to San Pedro’s Cabrillo Marine Aquarium and more. The evening choreographers include Moises Josue Michel, Candy Yi in collaboration with Chantal Cherry, Carissa Songhorian and JA Collective. Headlining the festival will be Duckler’s new work titled Further, in collaboration with composer/performer, Drum & Lace, exploring issues of climate change.
