Check out this play choreographed by Heidi Duckler at Linda Vista Hospital this weekend.
Heidi Duckler and her dance troupe have animated Modern houses, Laundromats, gas stations and the penthouse of a downtown skyscraper. Now she is taking her act to the Linda Vista Hospital in Boyle Heights for two weekends of The Groundskeepers, “a traveling multimedia performance that will animate the environs of the hospital buildings including the outdoor fire escape staircase, entry-way, chapel, boiler room, and outdoor parking lot wall.”
She says this is the last opportunity for the public to see this 1924 Mission Revival-style space before it is rebuilt as affordable housing, and audience members will follow dancers into areas of the site not typically open to the public.
Choreographed and directed by Heidi Duckler and written by George Moreno, The Groundskeepers will feature eight company dancers’ athletic movement alongside original music by composer Lu Kunene. Media artist and designer Refik Anadol, CalArts-based lighting designer Grant Dunn, and graphic designer Andrew Byrom will paint the hospital with stunning projections and typographic artworks, illuminating this iconic location before it moves on to its next transformation.
