Foxy Heidi Fox Lange

Heidi Fox Lange is an indispensable member of our team. She has been part of the Rat King family since January 2006. Always full of ideas, this incredible choreographer is also a world traveler, who spent much of the last year living in China. Now that she is back in Canada, we are happy to have her working on the show again, brining us all the jazz hands and tap moves that are required to convey a sense of urgency about the state of the world we live in.

The Daily Rat: How did you get involved with The Rat King?

Heidi Fox Lange: My lovely ex-roomie, Stephanie Markowitz, asked me to choreograph the original production.

Rat: What is your role in the show?

Heidi: Choreographer, a.k.a, jazz-hand and box-step co-ordinator.

Rat: What other creative and/or political projects have you been involved with?

Heidi: None. My previous shows are light and fluffy pieces of entertaining song and dance. Unless you count being pregnant in the 50's as Rizzo in 'Grease' as being political...definitely not creative though. [Rat: Here Ms. Lange displays a typical Canadian modesty.]

Rat: Of the themes in The Rat King, which do you feel a strong connection to?

Heidi: Having recently spent a year in a poor province in China, my major concern is with the pollution that is taking over our pure world as we know it. Can you even believe that my Chinese friends don't think stars are real, because they have only seen them in movies!?
