Los Angeles-based dance company Heidi Duckler Dance (HDD) presents THE QUEST, ten evenings of safely-distanced celebrations, animated by original performances, distinguished honorees, and spectacular views of Los Angeles from October 1st-10th. All events are COVID-19 safe and either drive-up or walk-up 6 feet apart. A Covid Compliance Officer will be present at every performance. Masks are required.

 

One of the important destinations of THE QUEST is Founder’s Church in Koreatown. On October 5th, HDD will be premiering a new dance film, Lost and Found. Directed by Heidi Duckler with cinematographer Nicolas Savignano and scored by Isaac Takeuchi and Sarah Belle Reid. This special screening will open with a live violin concert by Israel Heller!

 

THE QUEST series engages audiences in an interactive search for truth in our environment, our memory, and the challenging present moment. Involving 35 talented individuals made up of dancers, musicians, composers, singers, voiceover artists, set designers, costume designers, lighting designers, and cinematographers, THE QUEST represents Heidi Duckler Dance’s enduring dedication to inclusiveness and justice in dance, arts education, and our community.

 

THE QUEST takes you on a journey through Los Angeles, to the undiscovered gems of the city that are very near and dear to our hearts. These locations are not typical LA landmarks, nor do they tell the traditional story of our city. Instead, they are humble spaces for working, learning, healing, playing, dancing, and discovering.

 

As a dance company we use movement to explore intersectional topics affecting our city, especially its vulnerable populations. In this ten day experience, you’ll get a glimpse into the themes our year-round programming dives into. By bearing witness, you help us continue our work with students, veterans, incarcerated and formerly incarcerated individuals, foster youth, and people experiencing homelessness.
