HEIDI LATSKY DANCE: D.I.S.P.L.A.Y.E.D.
A choreographer and dancer of uncommon intelligence and fluidity.”– The New York Times
Heidi Latsky transforms her performance installation ON DISPLAY,seen in 40 cities across the globe, to create a new theatrical experience – part dance/part art exhibition. D.I.S.P.L.A.Y.E.D. explores society’s obsession with body image, challenges boundaries defining beauty, embodies inclusion through dance, and explores the concept of watching while being watched. With guest appearances by members of AXIS Dance Company.
ON DISPLAY has been a deconstructed art exhibit/fashion show and commentary on the body as spectacle and society's obsession with body image, turning a cast of diverse and extreme bodies into a sculpture court where the performers are the art. ON DISPLAY is now a movement, a growing portfolio of works that explore and demonstrate inclusion through art. It
has been presented in Times Square, Father Duffy Square; Chinatown, Mott Street; Brooklyn Bridge Park, Pier 1; Bronx Botanical Gardens; Lincoln Center David Rubenstein Atrium (Premiere); Art Director's Club; High Line Park; United Nations General Assembly Lobby; Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston; Prudential Insurance Hurleyville Arts Centre; NYU Skirball Center Lobby; NYU Tisch Dance; Federal Plaza, City Hall; Monteroni, Italy; Palencia, Spain; and Toronto, Canada.
