A vacant lot in Glendale, CA
For the second of the Expulsion Series, four athletic male dancers from Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre collaborated with five female dancers from the Iranian-Armenian Djanbazian Dance Company to initiate an open dialogue about the fragile nature of home and the universal experience of being forced to leave it. Upon Architect Alex Ward’s industrial set three stories above the audience, the dancers brought the vacant space to life, while being accompanied by Alex Noice’s original score. With support from Glendale Arts, Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre presented Expulsion in downtown Glendale to hundreds of people. Additionally, the company was honored to be a part of the World Festival of Sacred Music 2011.
