Intertwining dance and architecture has been a hallmark of LA based Heidi Duckler’s choreography for several decades. A nationally recognized pioneer of site-specific dance, her company has produced more than 60 site-specific works in a wide range of locations, including Laundromats, LA City Hall and the Los Angeles River, just to name a few.
Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre’s (HDDT) latest performance, entitled “A Trace of Lipstick”, will express themes of shifting relationships among couples and be performed amongst the existing furniture in SPF:a Gallery. The audience will view the work in the round, giving it a voyeuristic character. Inspired by the TV series “Mad Men” and the hypocrisies of the early 1960’s, the choreography explores duplicity, intimacy and the compartmentalizing of private lives.
