Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook, Culver City, CA on February 23 & 24, 2019. After a successful one day event in 2018, HDD was asked to bring the festival back to the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook for two days in 2019. Ebb & Flow is a free, site-specific community festival of local artists which integrates dance, visual arts, music and technology to explore climate change and its impact on the environment and, consequently, our health. The day started with free public dance workshops for all ages and abilities, booths from local artists, and opportunities to engage in environmental and wellness activities from Culver City health & wellness organizations. The festival also included student performances by Culver City High School,  A Place Called Home, and Dion Pratt throughout the day. The event concluded with a night time professional performance featuring guest choreographers Bernard Brown, Comfort Fedoke, Raymond Ejiofor, and Jacob “Kujo” Lyons. Duckler also premiered a new work Further in collaboration with composer/performer, Drum & Lace.
