Taught by Heidi Duckler and guest artist Austin Tyson.
Austin Tyson is originally from Portland, OR where he trained with the Jefferson Dancers. He received his BFA from NYU – Tisch School of the Arts. Post university, Austin joined Andrea Miller’s Gallim Dance, creating and performing with the company nationally and internationally. Austin went on to perform in Punchdrunk’s critically acclaimed, Sleep No More, where he eventually became a rehearsal director. Currently, Austin is based in LA where he is a freelance performer/choreographer. Most recently he has been seen on stage in the Broadway National Tour of Fiddler On The Roof, with MADboots Dance in City Center’s Fall For Dance, and will soon be performing at CAP UCLA with Micaela Taylor’s TL Collective.
Our Dance Lab gives professional and pre-professional dancers an insight into our creative process and the tools to create their own site-specific work! This 2-day workshop focuses on improvisation and composition in non-traditional spaces. With two different venues, you will be able to explore site-specific dance in a supportive and intimate environment.
The weekend will culminate in an immersive public showing involving live music and projections in a historic warehouse in Frogtown, Los Angeles. This short performance will be featured in Heidi Duckler Dance’s Season Calendar and HDD audiences will be invited to attend.
Participants will be considered for future performance & teaching opportunities.
