Heidi Duckler Dance brings its beloved Ebb & Flow festival back to the Los Angeles State Historic Park in Chinatown for a fourth year! Join us for a beautiful walk around the historic park. The festival will feature dance, visual arts, music, and technology through the form of interdisciplinary art pieces stationed throughout the park. Each unique piece is an exploration of climate change, nature, humanity, and health. Audience members will have the opportunity to stroll through the park and engage with each work.
This year, Heidi Duckler Dance is excited to be joined by local choreographers and artists Bib Bauer, Elena Brocade, Deborah Brockus, Taylor Donofrio, Darrel ‘Friidom’ Dunn, Lydia Janbay, Nat Wilson, Sunrise Transparence (Anj Vancura), and Beartriz Vasquez. HDD’s Artist in Residence, Ching Ching Wong will present work activating our yellow DanceMobile with dance and musical collaborators Rebecca Lee, Alejandro Perez, Gloria Anjona, and Javier Arjona. Visual artist Elkpen (Christian Kasperkovitz), a Los Angeles-based visual artist who creates visual stories about neighborhoods, natural history, science, and the next economy will present her work in partnership with Hollywood Orchard, a community orchard that is a teaching model for sustainability.
Come early and join the Audubon Society on a nature walk from 1:30 pm – 2:15 pm and enjoy a picnic in the park from 2:15 pm until the performances start at 3 pm. This add-on is available when you reserve your tickets and is a perfect introduction to the native flora and fauna, and the history of the park.
Stop the Gondola will have an informational booth at Ebb & Flow on Saturday, June 25th only! They’re an organization seeking to stop a project planning to build an aerial gondola between Union Station and Dodger Stadium. If approved, the project will construct huge towers on public land which would affect several neighborhoods, including Chinatown. Angelenos want their tax dollars to prioritize safe and affordable public transportation, more affordable housing, and solutions to the homeless crisis instead.
Join local choreographers, artists, and musicians in this family-friendly community exploration of climate change and its impact on the environment. You do not want to miss this!
