Our longtime client Heidi Latsky Dance performed On Display at the Cooper Hewitt Museum in New York City as part of Disability Pride Month.
On Display is a deconstructed art exhibit/fashion show and commentary on the body as spectacle and society’s obsession with body image. It turns a diverse cast varying in age, race, ability, and gender into a sculpture court of living statues.
We have provided ongoing design consulting for this innovative dance company for more than a decade and celebrate its commitment to the beauty and expression of diversity.
Heidi Latsky Dance
invites us to enter into a world that defies stereotypes, structural bias, and prejudice. The company brings together performers who are disabled, non-disabled and of varying ages, sizes, and races in works designed to lean into each individual’s strengths where everyone has an equal role. HLD exemplifies, through the beauty and virtuosity of its productions, an ideal model of how we might and should exist.
