Expulsion, a free dance performance by Heidi Duckler's Dance Theater

by LECRC on 09/27/16



October 15, 2011 4PM - 7PM
Location: 175 N. Brand Blvd, Glendale, CA (in a vacant lot)

This project was amazing and truly touching and inspiring. LECRC looks forward to working with HDDT in May for a collaboration with Little Ethiopia!


The project is being co-sponsored by Glendale Arts and is a collaboration with Glendale's own Djanbazian Dance Company.



Expulsion is a public art presentation based on themes of dislocation and relocation of families, an open dialogue about the impact these issues have on individuals, families and neighborhoods. Performed in a humble vacant lot, Expulsion profoundly dances the Old Testament story of Cain and Abel, upon industrial scaffolding echoing performances of growth and development.
