“For the choreographer Heidi Latsky, there are no unbeautiful bodies and no bodies incapable of dancing.”The New York Times
Please note that ON DISPLAY, Heidi Latsky Dance's living gallery, will take place in the lower lobby from 6-7 PM.
In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, Heidi Latsky Dance and AXIS Dance Company will perform together to create an unprecedented evening of innovative dance.
Heidi Latsky is known for using both conventional and unexpected performers. Somewhere is a series of intimate movement portraits that highlight the luminous appeal of a diverse unconventional cast. On Display, created for NYU Skirball, is a living gallery focusing on the themes of inclusion and diversity. Heidi Latsky will also be featured in Solo 1 as a prologue to Somewhere.
As seen on So You Think You Can Dance!, AXIS Dance Company is one of the world’s leading and most innovative ensembles of dancers with and without disabilities. AXIS will present two pieces: Divide, choreographed by Marc Brew, and to go again, a new work created by beloved choreographer Joe Goode.
