   Heidi Latsky Dance Company, based in NYC, which comprises of dancers of mixed abilities will celebrate World Disability Day through an installation entitled 'ON DISPLAY'. It is a sculpture court of live bodies in a public venue that involves moving very slowly from one held "sculpture" pose into another pose for the duration of about an hour. The movement is based on a practice/method that Heidi Latsky, founder and artistic director has developed that anyone of any ability can do, whether they are standing or sitting in a chair. 
   The idea behind ON DISPLAY is that each individual participating in the sculpture court goes on their own, internal journey through subtle, yet powerful movement that consequently puts the audience "On Display" too, as they walk through the court of moving bodies being active viewers and participants in the installation.
   ON DISPLAY has gone global with Heidi and other ON DISPLAY ambassadors traveling both nationally and internationally to set the installation in various cities to celebrate the beauty of all bodies, ages and abilities combined with the compelling power of dance and movement.
