On Display New Zealand - A Movement Installation by Heidi Latsky. Celebrating every person on International Day For Persons With Disabilities.

We've always been taught not to stare; not to look at someone deeply because it might offend them; that if someone "different" catches our eye we have objectified them. This is the life of the viewer.

Alternatively, should we possess a birthmark, a glorious height, or unknown disability we risk being too noticeable and often ostracized or worse. This is the life of the viewed. In both lives there is a harsh limitation where one does not have the time to see beyond mere characteristics and the other cannot be seen as anything but other.

How can we possibly create a safer space for both to really look? On Display New Zealand is the local platform of an annual worldwide initiative On Display Global that evolved out of Heidi Latsky Dance’s partnership with the NYC Mayor’s Office and the UN in celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

It is a sculpture court where the performers are the sculptures. On Display NZ joins a constellation of global sites: Jerusalem, Lima, Rio, Zagreb, Sao Paolo, Albuquerque, Hobart, Miami, Montreal, Milwaukee, Geneva, Brussels, London, Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles, and San Francisco
Heidi Latsky: (Artistic Director/Choreographer/Performer), originally from Montreal, received recognition as a celebrated principal dancer for the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company (1987-1993).

A choreographer for stage, theater and film, Latsky has a BA in Psychology from Carleton University (1979) and received a Scripps/ADF Primus-Tamaris Fellowship for Choreography and the McGinnis Lectureship Award from Point Park College. Her choreography has been commissioned by the Cannes International Dance Festival, American Dance Festival, Lincoln Center, Whitney Museum of Art, and The Joyce Theater among others.

She headed the Movement Department at The School for Film and Television from 1998-2005, developing The Latsky Method, performance skills that she teaches internationally.
