Ignite @ the FORD!

At sunset, performers and audience members will share the confined space of the Ford's loading dock, transformed by award-winning choreographer Heidi Duckler into the arresting site-specific work LOADED. As our society contemplates the implications of erecting walls – both physical and psychological – LOADED explores how borders manifest in physical space, who is allowed inside and who is kept out, how control is confronted and how dreams of freedom are realized. Through its site-specific practice, Heidi Duckler Dance hopes to inspire audiences to think differently about their assumptions of borders and “the other,” and ideally to become more accepting of those who come from different places in our society. 

Choreographed and directed by Heidi Duckler, this new work will feature dancers Raymond Ejiofor, Lenin Fernandez, Micaela Taylor and Himerria Wortham, with live music by Justin Scheid and lighting design by Christine Ferriter.
