Free Dance Event: The '1988' series
April 23, 2017
The 1988 event series celebrates the 1988 adoption of the Art in Public Places Program Ordinance. 1988 features four site-specific dance performances by Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre, which center on six featured artworks from Culver City’s public art collection. The events highlight the public art program and the performing arts as primary components of the ordinance. Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre will join former Cultural Affairs Commissioner, Marla Koosed, who worked closely on the most recent ordinance, to toast Culver City’s Centennial and present 1988 with performances throughout 2017. Each performance will take place on and around existing pieces of public art.
The first in the 1988 series, Cloud will feature one dancer, Teresa "Toogie" Barcelo," and a live musician, composer Joe Berry (M83) performing on and around the art piece designed by merge conceptual designs .
The performers will explore the earth's water cycle both above and below the earth's surface that the sculpture is intended to embody, while the audience looks on from the upper and park levels of the property.
The performances are free and open to the public though reservations are required. All necessary day-of information (parking, check-in procedures, etc.) will arrive in the "Know Before You Go" email prior to the performance.
