RYAN HEFFINGTON // KTCHN // NOLAN HENDRICKSON // YOU CANNOT MISS THIS

We are beyond honored to have Ryan Heffington as a friend, collaborator, and inspiration.  He and his team, through the inspiration of Nolan Hendrickson’s paintings, have created a world of romance, pain, loss, and gain.  When we sat in our seats at the opening night of KTCHN, we had that moment of realization that we were witness to something that will change things, something epic and historic.  Los Angeles is in the midst of a revolution in art and culture and I believe that Ryan and his crew are part of that shift.

I sat there watching this human experience of relationships, falling in love, and falling out of love.  The combat we create with one another, the layers of emotion we bring to the surface, through the communication of dance. Then again, love really is a dance anyway. There were moments when I felt like my personal experience of falling in love, then that love falling away, and the aftermath were being displayed.  Like someone read my diary.  It felt very personal in  many ways, and yet was such a shared experience.  In that moment, we were all there, witnessing the same thing.
