Saturday, May 12 – FishEyes
Artistic Director Heidi Duckler is joined by dancers Danny Dolan, Amanda MacLeod and Himerria Wortham who will open the performance with three oral stories narrated by writer and environmentalist Jedidiah Jenkins. Each story will be accompanied by a solo dancer creating original movement inspired by themes of water conservation, climate change, and human connection to our environment. A panel discussion lead by Board President, Jamarah Hayner will follow. Panelists Jon Christensen (Professor, UCLA Institute for the Environment and Sustainability), Seleta Reynolds (General Manager, LADOT), and Glen Dake (Landscape Architect) will discuss how art making can increase environmental awareness. Closing the evening is a reprise of FishEyes accompanied by an original score composed by Juhi Bansl and performed live by contemporary violinist Yvette Cornelia Holzwarth and pianist Nic Gerpe. Stay for a post performance reception and enjoy a glass of wine, light snacks and conversation with the artists.
This performance is made possible with support from The Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.
