Baruch Performing Arts Center
presents
Heidi Latsky Dance in the
New York City Premiere of
D.I.S.P.L.A.Y.E.D.
March 8 – 10, 2018 at 7:30pm

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.

Part gallery of living sculpture, part immersive dance experience, in D.I.S.P.L.A.Y.E.D., Heidi Latsky Dance will experiment with multimedia aspects to enhance an audience’s perception of inclusion; the performers themselves represent a wise cross-section of the diversity spectrum. A movement installation devised to disrupt public spaces with a meditative sculpture court of real people now reenters a more traditional venue in D.I.S.P.L.A.Y.E.D.

The evening will include installations throughout the space, transforming the entire venue including all lobby areas. Fellow Canadian Aerialist and double-amputee Erin Ball will be featured in a 30-minute solo, Suspended Disbelief, during which she will perform in and around her wheelchair that is being suspended by the silks. Films by Janet Wong, Associate Artistic Director of New York Live Arts and Paul Galando (HLD’s media director) will be screened. Guest appearances by members of the West Coast-based AXIS Dance Company and members of the Baruch College community.
