Heidi Latsky Dance Troupe Pays Tribute to a Mother's Courage
by JENNIFER DUNNING for the New York Times

Sandra Latsky battled brain tumors for 35 years before dying in late 2004. Heidi Latsky, her daughter, who is a modern-dance choreographer and performer in New York City, paid tribute to that fight and to her mother's courage and humor in "Disjointed," a new full-evening piece performed by Heidi Latsky Dance on Saturday night at the Danspace Project at St. Mark's Church.

Honoring Life
Approaching feelings sideways and upside down
by DEBORAH JOWITT for the Village Voice

Even without reading the program, we get a sense of Nathan Trice as a watchful outsider-leader who could easily be a death figure. When Latsky stretches upward to the sound of heartbeats, he copies her. Toward the end of the piece, when he dances alone, she hesitantly imitates his steps. (Sean Curran choreographed this duet.)

Performers in 'GIMP' invite audience to stare
Disabled and non-disabled dancers push each other to unexpected places of beauty

....
The dancers of "GIMP" present a bold look at the unexpected, a rarely observed beauty and grace, as they confront stereotypes of what people with disabilities can and cannot do. The piece shifts from solos to duets, showing off both the dancers' vulnerabilities and their strengths. ....
"I wanted to go into their world and expose them," says Heidi Latsky, the dancer and choreographer who founded the Heidi Latsky Dance company. "I wanted to express who they are."

Bodies, thoughts put into motion

It’s OK. You can look.

That’s the first thing the creative minds behind “GIMP” want you to understand.

Making its way to the Institute of Contemporary Art this weekend, “GIMP,” a series of movement portraits featuring a cast of disabled and nondisabled dancers, upends the logic that we shouldn’t stare at people with physical disabilities. The show, from choreographer Heidi Latsky, makes us stare.

Performers rise to challenge in 'Gimp'
....
A series of movement portraits for both disabled and nondisabled dancers - now crash-colliding, now sensually intertwining - the piece slams home a truth not about the beauty in physical differences but about the art of dance itself: What makes a glorious dancer is not body type but the ability of a performer to create - with limbs and torso and, yes, heart - an illusion much grander than herself.
