"In the old neighborhoods the ghosts are rising.... " Narrator Richard Azurdia stands on the stage of the Casa del Mexicano, a community center in Boyle Heights, speaking of angels, the spirits of the dead and the impermanence of all things. It's the Thursday premiere of "The Entire World Is a Narrow Bridge," and though ghosts and a sense of impermanence are familiar enough in the site-specific repertory of Heidi Duckler's locally based Collage Dance Theatre, this company vehicle is unusual.

On a recent afternoon downtown at California Plaza, as the stock market plunges and the temperature soars, local businesspeople and tourists sip cappuccinos in the sunlight--their eyes on the upper reaches of the three-level fountain, where a group splashes around in suit jackets draped over their bathing suits. The water is littered with abandoned computer keyboards and telephones, beaten-up office desks and brightly colored swivel chairs. "Two minutes!"

Regarding Chris Pasles' review of Heidi Duckler's "Out of Circulation," performed at the Santa Monica Public Library on June 26 and 27 ("Collage Theatre Offers 'Out of Circulation,' " June 29). I composed and performed the music and had a flutist performing with me. The music was not taped . Sections were computer sequenced, but the vocal samples, some piano passages and all flute passages were performed live . Audio tape was never used. In addition, Ann Barber, the actress reciting the text was not lip-syncing!

High production values and simplistic satire characterized Heidi Duckler and Bonnie Lavin's "Chaos: Something Normally Present," offered Saturday by Collage Dance Theater at the Downtown Dance Studio. Employing slinky costumes, wildly oversize props, colorful slide projections and some striking original music, this 50-minute dance drama traced the imposition of mechanical regimentation upon an original state of free-flowing, playful chaos.
