1988 features four site-specific dance performances by Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre, centering on six featured artworks from Culver City’s public art collection. The 1988 event series celebrates the 1988 adoption of the Art in Public Places Program Ordinance and will highlight the public art and performing arts programs as primary components of the ordinance. Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre joins 1988 Producer and former Culver City Cultural Affairs Commissioner, Marla Koosed, who worked closely on the most recent ordinance update. Together they toast Culver City’s Centennial and present 1988 with performances throughout 2017.
The series will begin on Sunday, April 23 with Cloud, the permanent artwork by merge conceptual design located at Access Culver City. This intimate viewing performance will feature one dancer, Teresa ‘Toogie’ Barcelo, and live musician, composer Joe Berry (M83) performing on and around the sculpture exploring the earth’s water cycle both above and below the earth’s surface that the sculpture intends to embody. Cloud is made of polished stainless steel, shaped like a Mobius strip, which houses nozzles along the two narrow edges of the band intermittently emitting fog, thus enveloping the sculpture in a cloud. The audience will view the performance from the upper and park levels of the property. The artists, Claudia Reisenberger and Franka Diehnelt of merge conceptual design, will begin each performance with an introduction to the sculpture. The performance is outdoors, 30 minutes long and is free and open to the public though reservations are required.
