For one time only, Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre will bring its site-specific brand of immersive performance to the historic Southwest Museum site!

Looking for something to do this weekend? Join us for the annual Lummis Day Festival! From June 3-5th, there will be events, live music, arts, crafts, and cultural performances throughout Northeast LA, including a special performance of “143 Days” at the historic Southwest Museum site.

Inspired by Charles Fletcher Lummis’s 143-day trek from Cincinnati to Los Angeles, this mobile dance performance will take the audience through the historic 1914 museum building that was the vision of Charles Lummis. Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre company members Nicholas Heitzeberg, Teresa Barcelo, Zoe Nelson, and Micah Abbrey will be joined by So You Think You Can Dance season 12 contestant, Lily Frias, and Glee’s Matthew Peacock. Local composers Chris Garcia and Jeronimo Rajchenberg will accompany the dancers, playing live musical arrangements.

Tickets are required for this special event. Space is extremely limited, but there are still some tickets available! Enter the promotional code “trust” to receive a special discounted rate. Discounts are also available to seniors and students.

Following the performance, audience members will have the opportunity to meet the artists during an informal reception. Staff from the Autry and the National Trust will share information about the architecture and Lummis himself.

This special performance will take place on Saturday, June 4th, from 4–5 p.m. at the Southwest Museum, located at 234 Museum Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90065.

See you this weekend at the Southwest Museum site!
