On Friday, August 14th, at 7:00pm, Chevalier’s will host an artist from the Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre for an in-store performance and Heidi herself will be signing copies of The Heidi Duckler Dance Theater 30th Anniversary Book.
Founded in 1985 by Artistic/Executive Director and choreographer Heidi Duckler, the Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre has created memorable dance experiences in extraordinary locations for over two decades. The theatre creates innovative dance experiences in non-traditional spaces and provides learning opportunities to diverse neighborhoods. Their goal is to build community through the performing arts by connecting audiences and artists.
Heidi Duckler has choreographed more than 100 original dance works at unique sites in Australia, Russia, Hong Kong, New York and Seattle, among many others, and throughout Southern California including Lincoln Heights Jail, the Los Angeles River, the former Ambassador Hotel and the Los Angeles Police Academy. She has been heralded as “the reigning queen of site-specific performance” by the L.A. Times. Heidi is currently a Board Member of the University of Oregon’s School of Music and Dance Advancement Council. She has received an American Masterpieces Award from the National Endowment for the Arts. You can learn more about her theatre at heididuckler.org.
We will have copies of Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre for sale at the store before and after this free event. If you’re familiar with Heidi’s work, you’ll know this will be an incredible, one-of-a-kind performance, and we are honored to provide the venue!
