Lakeside Stories is a one-day educational workshop & performance led by HDDT, painter and muralist, Kim West, and National Park Ranger, Tori Kuykendall. Participants will be on site at the Peter Strauss Ranch within the Santa Monica Mountain National Recreation Area to explore memory and storytelling through the lenses of art and ecology. From 12pm - 2pm participants will enjoy activities that include a printmaking workshop exploring monotype transfer drawing and ghost print techniques using found objects as mark-making utensils led by West and a local flora and fauna hike with Kuykendall.
At 2pm HDDT company dancers Himerria Wortham and Belle Jessen will perform a new work in the abandoned swimming pool where West’s installation-including her 115-foot mural Lake Enchanto lives. During the site-specific performance, the dancers will transform the work of West’s installation, while activating different parts of the site. Following HDDT’s performance Millennium Dance Complex Company will show a work created earlier that day with HDDT teaching artists and will incorporate the monotype transfer drawing and ghost print techniques from West’s workshop.
Following the performance is a HDDT Member reception inside Peter Strauss Ranch.
