Dancing Down Under

Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre is gearing up to perform Ocean's Skin in Brisbane, Australia through a commission from the Brisbane Festival. Set in and around Queensland Cultural Center's Whale Mall, dancers will reflect 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.

Two Shows in Two Weeks

In the span of two weeks, Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre traveled to Dusseldorf, Germany to perform Off the Top of My Head in internationale tanzmesse, a prestigious contemporary dance festival, and then back to Los Angeles to perform Dancing at Dunbar at the historic Dunbar Hotel in South Los Angeles. We have nothing but gratitude for all of the amazing dance artists we met in Dusseldorf, and for the talented Kunstakademie administrators who assisted us in bringing the building to life with movement. For Dancing at Dunbar, a special thanks to Thomas Safran and Associates, the Los Angeles City Department of Cultural Affairs, and to all of those who attended the sold out show!
