Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre

AARON SPENCER
8 pm Friday-Saturday, Sept. 6-7., Friday September 06 | $25.
Custom House
220 NW 8th Ave.
 
When the historic U.S. Custom House was successfully auctioned off last year to become office space, dreams of the building becoming anything cool or exciting were essentially squashed. But the building has a last hurrah in it, as dancers are going to leap and twirl in front of its light gray granite before the suits move in. Heidi Duckler, a Portland-born choreographer who’s been living in Los Angeles, is big on site-specific dance; she previously did shows at the Reed College Performing Arts Building and on the roof of the Twelve West Building. The U.S. Custom House was built in 1901 as a place to do the paperwork for imports and exports. Most recently, it was the set of the police station for Grimm. In this performance, which Duckler calls Something to Declare, she wants to “awaken the site’s long-standing structural, cultural and historical memory.”
