Dance: Unfurling – The Old L.A. Zoo

June 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Los Angeles-based dance company Heidi Duckler Dance (HDD) is pleased to announce a colorful performance, Unfurling, happening on Saturday, June 8, 2024, from 7 pm-8 pm.

Experience the enchantment of a Heidi Duckler Dance performance during golden hour, as we transform into luminous pollen poufs and embark on a captivating journey through the historic ruins of the Old Los Angeles Zoo.

A one-night-only, site-specific collaboration between Heidi Duckler Dance and visual artist Kim West. In the patinated ruins of the Old Zoo, Kim West’s installation includes sculptural fabric flows, a mural assembled from over 2,000 handmade ceramic pieces, and an illustration of nebulous flora forms, that together form a project about the joyful imagery of flowers, color, and wonder.

As the soft glow of light bathes the scene and the sun sets behind Bee Rock, Heidi Duckler Dance’s choreography guides phosphoric luminescent performers amidst the ruins, leading the audience on a mesmerizing journey of discovery and imagination.

Feel free to join us at 5 pm before performances begin for a picnic of refreshments available for purchase.

Cost: $15 General Admission

Heidi Duckler Dance (HDD) is rooted in Freedom, Community and Inclusivity.
