DUCKLER DANCE LIGHTS UP AT THE WALLIS

Live dance returns to The Wallis with the world premiere of August 12-15, 2021, 8:00 pm’s The Chandelier, a site-specific work choreographed and directed by Ms. Duckler, running August 12–15, 2021 on The Wallis’s outdoor stage. Taking the audience on an epic journey, The Chandelier, created for The Wallis, is based on a novel of the same title by Brazilian author Clarice Lispector, which was hailed by The New York Times for its “undeniable quantity of genius (and) heart-stopping payoff.” Duckler animates the book’s interior monologues and devises characters from odd fragments of dialogue to create a moving portrait of a family living amid the ruins of a colonial society. Through layers of imagery, acts of repetition and audience engagement, Duckler explores the contrasting ideas of impermanence and the irrevocable. L.A.-based Heidi Ducker Dance is noted for creating ephemeral place-based performances that transform non-traditional spaces.
