Join us on January 20th at 7pm in Millar Lodge for the premiere of an entirely new work created during Heidee Alsdorf’s residency at Mount Sequoyah’s Creative Spaces. Masks will be required for this event. Tickets are only $10. You can also donate toward future residencies to ensure exciting new creative work happens in our community!
Heidee holds a B.F.A. in Dance from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock (USA), an M.F.A. in Physical Theatre from Accademia dell’Arte (IT) in partnership with Mississippi University for Women (USA), and a certification to teach Scott Puttnam’s Elemental Body Alignment System. She is a candidate to receive certification in Dry Massage Therapy from Oligenesi (IT) in 2022. In the past, Heidee has performed in productions with choreographers such as Isabel Lewis, Giorgio Rossi, Rennie Harris, and Stephanie Thibeault. She has been seen as a guest artist with Divadlo Continuo (CZ), Familie Flöz (DE), Flic Scuola di Circo (IT), Teatro C’Art (IT), Spazio Seme (IT), Broken Jump Theatre (IT), The Arkansas Repertory Theatre (USA), Little Rock Wind Symphony (USA), and Teebodans (USA).
In practice, Heidee is committed to care and social change toward decolonization of performance spaces and embodiment practices. Her performance work interlaces her research on sensation, memory, human behaviour, and relationships. By exploring intersections between dance, theatre, somatics, vocal expression, and collective action, Heidee asks questions about what brings people together and how we can better support each other in creative practice to imagine and bring forth the future we want to experience together.
