Meet Ms. Myth!

On November 6, 2014 at 7pm Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre will live stream a double bill performance titled Ms. Myth of two archival works: Cleopatra, CEO (2012), performed on the 51st Floor of the Paul Hastings tower, and Really, All About Eve (2009), performed at the Temple Akiba in Culver City. Join us, and our partner 2ndLine.tv, online for a night of fantastical dance that re-imagines the legends of Cleopatra (of Egypt) and Eve (of the Garden of Eden) and takes an intimate look at the women behind the myths.

Dancing Down Under

Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre has returned from down under after performances of Ocean's Skin in Brisbane, Australia with generous support from a commission from the Brisbane Festival. Set in and around Queensland Cultural Center's Whale Mall, dancers reflected the interplay between the heavens and seas to new music created and performed live by Topology, an Australian post-modernist music ensemble.

Back to school!

In early September the Duck Truck Residency Program completed the first residency of the 2014-2015 school year at A Place Called Home! This year drew a larger crowd as an estimated 100 additional community members attended the end-of-residency performance. Thanks to all of our Duck Truck funders, the Irvine Foundation, the California Arts Council, A Place Called Home, and to all of our new Duck Truck teaching artists for a successful residency. Revving its engines for another residency this December at Culver City Middle School, the Duck Truck is all geared up for the rest of 2014 thanks to generous funding from the City of Culver City and SONY Pictures!
