Approximate runtime is 90 minutes
Its most inspired passages qualify as pure junkyard art: abandoned objects and even buildings transformed into integral components of uproariously inventive music and dance. — Lewis Segal, Los Angeles Times, 1992 on Parts and Labor
23 years after the original, Heidi Duckler will completely re-imagine Parts and Labor with choreography that explores America’s love affair with the automobile. In addition to dancers performing on and around a 1970 Cadillac Coupe de Ville, percussionists from the band “Antenna Repairmen” will be on site playing the amplified metal.
On Thursday, January 22, the Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre will open Parts and Labor Redux on the parking lot behind Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE) and reprise the show the following night.
The January 22 and 23 performances are part of a partnership with LACE and provide a great chance for the LA-area community to check out both the performance and LACE. Tickets cost $40 with a student/senior rate of $20 and attendees will have the opportunity to tour the exhibits after the performance.
The performance on January 22 includes a talk back with Heidi Duckler, composer Bob Fernandez and performers.
