On Display Global

PERFORMANCE OPPORTUNITY

ON DISPLAY GLOBAL

Sunday December 3, 2023

4:00 to 5:00 pm PT

(in person and online) 

 

You are invited to take part in ON DISPLAY GLOBAL (ODG), a performance taking place both in person and online on Sunday, December 3 in honour of United Nations’ International Day of Persons with Disabilities.  

WHAT IS ON DISPLAY GLOBAL?

ODG is an annual, worldwide initiative led by New York based Heidi Latsky Dance . It is an in-person and virtual event lasting 24 hours and streamed live on Zoom. Part meditation and part art exhibition, participants move almost imperceptibly slowly for the entire performance, (while also taking care of themselves of course as we do in ABDP!) There are no grand gestures or big movements. The performance invites dancers of all ages, sizes, and embodiments to be “on display” as “sculptures”. The piece is a “commentary on the body as spectacle and society's obsession with body image.”

WHERE AND WHEN DOES ODG TAKE PLACE?  

This year, dancers can participate in-person or online but they must take part in the rehearsal to learn the performance score.
