The National Portrait Gallery presents Heidi Latsky Dance, a New York City-based dance company dedicated to redefining beauty and virtuosity through provocative and innovative performance. “ON DISPLAY” features a cast of 20 dancers—ranging in age, race, size, disability and gender—who will create an interactive space where the viewer and the viewed can experience the beauty of difference.

The performance is free and open to the public. It celebrates the Washington, D.C. premiere of this performance installation initially conceived to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
