“Choreographer Heidi Duckler long ago cemented her bona fides as L.A.’s mistress of site-specific dance theater, using movement to guide audiences to a deeper understanding of this city’s geographic infrastructure, from Laundromats and the underground Red Car lines to historic jails and the cement walls of the L.A. River.”
