Event Description

The second performance in the 1988 series will be on Sunday, May 7, 2017 on and around Punctuation Station, the permanent artwork by Jeff Kopp located in Target Court, level 2 and in the Sky Lobby, level 3 at Westfield Culver City. This dance performance is two events in one, beginning with a teaching event from 12:00-5:00PM, followed by the public performance event from 5:30-7:00PM.

This dance piece is based on the learning and educational work of the Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre (HDDT), and will bring together HDDT teaching artists and Culver City High School Academy of Visual and Performing Arts (AVPA) students to explain how original work is created based on a relationship of bodies and objects to space. This process provides guided coursework for the students on how to create a site-specific performance by connecting the artworks punctuation symbols to body language. The AVPA students will gather in the ‘Sky Lobby’ above ‘Target Court’ where some of Punctuation Station is installed to create their own work and observe the HDDT dancers below in ‘Target Court’ rehearsing their piece. The performance will begin at 5:30PM with a brief explanation of the artwork by Jeff Kopp. The HDDT dancers will invite the AVPA students to ‘Target Court’ to share their performance and in turn, the AVPA students will invite the HDDT dancers to see their debut performance in the ‘Sky Lobby’ where Punctuation Station is also installed. The event will conclude with a public talk-back with artists and students.

Kopp’s artwork, Punctuation Station speaks to the commercial signage and typographic forms that populate the urban landscape and invite exploration through physical recognition. The artwork consists of multiple parts, installed in Target Court on level 2 and in the Sky Lobby on level 3.

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.
