The Chandelier

Heidi Duckler Dance

The Wallis Presents

Apr 15 - 18 | 08:00 PM



The Wallis has made the difficult but important decision to cancel or postpone all performances through May 31, 2020, including Heidi Duckler Dance’s production of The Chandelier. If you are a current ticket holder for this event, our Ticket Services office will be reaching out to you directly to discuss options available to you for your already-purchased tickets.

Directed and choreographed by Heidi Duckler, The Chandelier will take the audience on an epic journey from the Promenade Terrace throughout the grounds of The Wallis, culminating in the Lovelace Studio Theater. The Chandelier is based on a novel of the same title by Brazilian writer Clarice Lispector. Duckler will animate the interior monologues and devise characters from the odd fragments of dialogue to create a moving portrait of a family living amongst the ruins of a colonial society. Through layers of imagery, acts of repetition, and audience engagement, the work explores the contrasting ideas of impermanence and the irrevocable.

Dance @ The Wallis is made possible in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
