We’ve always been taught not to stare; that if someone “different” catches our eye we’ve objectified them. Alternatively, should we possess a birthmark, a glorious height or a visible disability we risk being too noticeable, ostracized. In both scenarios, there is a limitation where one does not see beyond mere physical characteristics and the other cannot be anything but other. How can we create a safe space to really look? How can we nurture people to reveal who they are with fierceness and vulnerability and within the context of high art? This is D.I.S.P.L.A.Y.E.D., a safe place where people have the time to engage with difference and those who are often ostracized are empowered through their own authenticity. A movement installation devised to disrupt public spaces with a meditative sculpture court of real people now reenters a traditional venue with the same energy of the outdoors. Heidi Latsky Dance will use this time to experiment with the multimedia aspects (film, projection, score) that enhance an audience’s perception of inclusion.
