Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre hits the library

Back in Circulation dance work at the libraryCalifornia’s Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre has re-envisioned its original work Back in Circulation from 1993 and it will soon present the latest version at the West Hollywood Library on Saturday, October 7 at 7:30 p.m.


Artistic Director Heidi Duckler will once again be joined by her core company dancers, Micah “Jamz” Abbrey, Lenin Fernandez and Zoe Nelson. Visual designer Mimi Haddon and composer, percussionist and multimedia artist Andrea Centazzo are collaborating with her on the series.


Designed by the Culver City firm Johnson Favaro, the West Hollywood Library is considered to be among the most impressive pieces of public architecture in Southern California. The library includes long expanses of floor-to-ceiling glass windows that look out over the major Los Angeles thoroughfare, San Vicente Boulevard and across to the iconic Pacific Design Center. 


Duckler’s choreography will focus on the vast windows of the library as symbolic thresholds for sharing information, as well as containers of public space. Among the most critical topics of discussion in America over the last several years has been our access to information: its availability, accuracy, creation, destruction and veracity. Perhaps no single site or landmark in American culture is more synonymous with “information” than the public library. In Back in Circulation, Duckler will seek to activate the West Hollywood site to explore contemporary questions of knowledge and understanding through movement. 


Tickets are $25 general admission or $20 for seniors/students. Reserve your spot now at https://backincirculationagain.eventbrite.com. The West Hollywood Library is located at 625 North San Vicente Boulevard in West Hollywood, CA.
