1988: Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre Performs at City Hall

Hanging Garden by Ed Carpenter

The final ‘1988’ Series Performance will be on Saturday, September 9th featuring Hanging Garden by Ed Carpenter, Quotation Courtyard & Panoramic by Barbara McCarren and La Ballona by May Sun at Culver City City Hall Courtyard.

This dance piece is rooted in the history of Culver City. It will take place in September concluding the series in the same month and year of Culver City’s actual Centennial. The performance begins with a processional parade down Culver Boulevard into the courtyard of City Hall and culminating at Heritage Park, the location of the replica of the original City Hall façade.

The audience will be seated in the courtyard of City Hall, listening to live Chamber Music, then five HDDT company dancers start performing on the second and third balconies of the atrium at Hanging Garden. The second act opens with dancers beckoning the public to Heritage Park where both La Ballona and Quotation Courtyard & Panoramic are located.

What is '1988'?

1988 features four site-specific dance performances by the 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 program and the performing arts grant program as primary components of the ordinance.

This performance series is made possible with major funding from the City of Culver City Cultural Trust Fund. Additional sponsorship made possible by The Culver Studios, The Lapis Press and The Culver Hotel.
