On Display

Presented by Heidi Latsky Dance and Second Echo Ensemble.

On Display is a  commentary on the body as spectacle and society’s obsession with body image. Members of the disability, performance, and fashion worlds are often stared at and objectified in their daily lives.  New York based choreographer Latsky addresses this propensity to judge people according to what they look like. Latsky’s company will be transported in live from NYC. 

Reverting the gaze is integral to disability culture. In this installation, the performers have the power to choose what they do or do not reveal, giving them control over a personal journey that cannot help but be affected by an audience. The tenuous and complex relationship between viewer and viewed that exists in performative work also permeates everyday life with people who are different in some physical way and hence draws attention to themselves whether they want to or not.
