Donald Lee is a bilateral amputee dancer with Heidi Latsky Dance (HLD), an integrated dance company featuring atypical bodies as sights/sites to address the ideas of beauty, physicality, and authenticity. His own creative practice explores casualty of identities and the aesthetics of damage, loss, and wounds. He is particularly interested in the infinite (and often irreversible) process of repair in connection with social institution, cultural tradition, or personal history. He recently toured with Heidi Latsky Dance at HIGH FEST in Armenia as part of American Dance Abroad (ADA) program “FOCUS: USA” sponsored by the U.S. Embassy. In 2019, he performed at Perry Farrell’s Kind Heaven Tour and at NYC Disability Pride Parade. In addition, Donald is featured in the World Pride 2019 | Stonewall 50 campaign. He received his BA in Art History from Clark University and is an artist based in Brooklyn.
