House: A Site Specific Performance on the Pacific Edge

February 4, 2017

HousePalos Verdes Art Center presents HOUSE: A Site-Specific Performance on the Pacific Edge on Saturday, February 4 from 4:30 to 8 p.m.

This exclusive event begins with sunset cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, followed by two unique performances. The evening will feature Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre and architecture by Aaron G. Green, followed by Wearable Expressions 7th International Juried Exhibition Runway Show by JosĂ© O. Lemus and wrapping up with a dance party with celebrity DJ William Reed and food stations featuring 60’s house party food with a contemporary twist.

Andy Anderson is a site-specific performance created by Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre for the 1959 midcentury Anderson House designed by Aaron G. Green. With original music performed live by Yvette Cornelia and the Treehouse, intimate choreographies will happen in the living room/kitchen, the master bedroom, and the zen garden. A culminating performance by the pool will feature three dancers and four musicians, and will draw on the architecture of the home and secretive behaviors of the 1960’s culture of the Rancho Palos Verdes community. A subterranean world existed beneath societal norms and was expressed in underground bowling alleys, shooting ranges, bomb shelters, and wine cellars, and this combination of recreation and paranoia – that which is buried in the earth and buried in the mind – will serve as the inspiration for this one time only event.” – Heidi Duckler, Artistic Director

Called the “reigning queen of site-specific performance” by the LA Times, choreographer Heidi Duckler has created more than 200 contemporary art experiences in nontraditional spaces since 1985. Awards garnered by Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre include a City of LA Department of Cultural Affairs COLA Award, California Arts Council Choreography Fellowship and National Endowment of the Arts American Masterpiece award.
