Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre Presents Back in Circulation
At Downtown Glendale Central Library
Glendale, CA - The Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre (HDDT) will bring its innovative site-specific dance artistry to the main floor of the Downtown Central Library, 222 East Harvard Street, Glendale 91205, at 8 pm on Saturday, August 26, 2017. As with all of HDDT’s site-specific dance work, the company will create Back in Circulation entirely on-site at the Downtown Central Library, letting the history, culture, architecture, stories, and accouterments of the space inform the creative work. Artistic Director Heidi Duckler is joined by her core company dancers, Micah ‘Jamz’ Abbrey, Teresa Barcelo, and Lenin Fernandez, visual designer, Mimi Haddon, and composer, percussionist and multimedia artist, Andrea Centazzo, to create the new work.

One of the most common topics of discussion in America for the last several years has been information: its accessibility, accuracy, creation, destruction, veracity. No single site or landmark in American culture is more synonymous with “information” than our public libraries. HDDT’s re-creation of its classic dance piece will focus on our collective need for, and right to information, and the pursuit of truth that drives us all, even when we are not sure of where, or how, to find it. Back in Circulation is the re-imagining of their classic work, Out of Circulation, first staged at Santa Monica Civic Library in 1993.
This free performance is part of the Arts & Culture Commission’s AHA—Art Happens Anywhere, and is supported by the City of Glendale and the Glendale Arts & Culture Commission, with funding from the Urban Art Program. The Library, Arts & Culture Department and the Arts & Culture Commission encourage the expansion of arts and culture activities to benefit the citizens of our community, and to provide artists with new and interesting opportunities to share their art. AHA! is one of a roster of programs in the Arts & Culture Work Plan. Its specific purpose is to stimulate the public with non-traditional artwork, art experiences and performances in unexpected places.
PARKING: Visitors to the Downtown Central Library receive FREE 3 hour parking in the MarketPlace parking structure on Harvard Street with validation at the library service desk on the main floor.
