Event description

Description

Heidi Duckler Dance (HDD) is proud to present Ebb & Flow: Culver City 2019. After a successful one day event in 2018, HDD was asked to bring the festival back to the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook for two days in 2019! The festival will take place at the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook from 11 am - 7 pm on February 23 and 24, 2019.

Ebb & Flow: Culver City is a free, site-specific community festival of local artists at the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook which integrates dance, visual arts, music and technology to explore climate change and its impact on the environment and, consequently, our health. The day begins with free public dance workshops for all ages and abilities, booths from local artists, and opportunities to engage in environmental and wellness activities from Culver City health & wellness organizations. The festival also includes student performances by Culver City High School, St. Mary’s Academy and A Place Called Home throughout the day.

Curated by Heidi Duckler Dance, the weekend event will feature site-specific performances by diverse local artists from neighboring communities. Choreographers featured in the event will present their new works on HDD’s fish sculpture. HDD collaborated with architect Alex Ward to design and build a 15-foot steel fish sculpture that acts as an interactive public art piece. The sculpture has moved throughout the Los Angeles area, from Downtown LA’s Pershing Square to San Pedro’s Cabrillo Marine Aquarium and more. Choreographers include Comfort Fedoke, Raymond Ejiofor, Jacob “Kujo” Lyons. Headlining the festival will be a new work created by Duckler in collaboration with composer/performer, Drum & Lace, exploring issues of climate change.

This project is supported by the California Arts Council. These performances are made possible in part by the City of Culver City, in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Performing Arts Grant Program, with support from Sony Pictures Entertainment.
