Event description

Description

"Once in a Whale" is a site-specific dance performance that expresses global concerns about our climate and the importance of human bonds. Four sections - Fall, Summer, Winter, and Spring - take the audience on a journey through the elaborate lobby of Center Blue in the Pacific Design Center. Designed by Cesar Pelli in 1975, the work is choreographed around the center’s architectural qualities. "Once in a Whale" is directed and choreographed by Heidi Duckler in collaboration with five professional dancers from the company. The dancers include Associate Artistic Director, Teresa Barcelo, Jillian Meyers, Matthew Peabody, Ryan Page, Himerria Wortham and Raymond Ejiofor. Mimi Haddon, a frequent collaborator with Heidi Duckler, will create new costumes and a fabric instillation set design. The work will be accompanied by live violin with Yvette Cornelia Holzwarth and percussion.

Following the performance, a special fine wine and cheese reception will take place. An opportunity for audience members to meet the dancers and choreographer, discuss the work, and meet other art and dance enthusiasts is offered for purchase in advance or at the door.

This performance is made possible with funding from the City of West Hollywood's WeHo Arts Program.
