Project Description

Whistling in the Dark

Artist: Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre/Northwest
August 7th, 2014

A site-specific dance performance
choreographed and directed by Heidi Duckler

Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre/Northwest’s newest site-specific performance, Whistling in the Dark, will animate the terraced outdoor courtyard at Disjecta with sultry, agile movement. Against the glowing backdrop of the setting summer sun, local dancers will mix ballroom and breaking—with a bit of salsa thrown in for good measure—to transform the dark into a landscape of intimacy, intrigue, and connection.

Paired with a special wine reception with Artistic/Executive Director Heidi Duckler and the cast, mouthwatering hors d’oeuvres, and live music, Whistling in the Dark will immerse audiences into a sensual summer performance at twilight.

Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre/Northwest (HDDT/NW) redefines relationships between artists and audiences by presenting bold choreography in extraordinary places, and through collaborations with artists and communities of the Pacific Northwest, cultivates public engagement to create meaningful, multidisciplinary performances with exceptional artistic standards.
