The Goat Farm Arts Center and glo announce season two of Tanz Farm, a series of performances, shops, and collaborative experiments emphasizing interaction and place. The event runs from Oct. 21 to May 24.
Highlights in the second season include the acclaimed dance-theatre of Niv Scheinfeld and Oren Laor (Israel), sound artist C.D Howe (Canada), the extraordinary physical language of Sidra Bell/NY, mixed-media artist Austin McCormick and his Baroque inspired Company XIV (New York), a new physical installation from Lauri Stallilngs + glo (Atlanta), dances from international choreographer Gustavo Ramirez Sansano (Spain), and a new work by Atlanta’s Greg Catellier/Catellier Dance Projects.The FEED series, public conversations between curators, makers, and writers, working in new ideas and forms, will also be taking place.
Goat Farm owner and co-curator Anthony Harper said, “Tanz is truly a path finding project. We are always looking for ways to positively disrupt the city with fresh input. More than a series of performances, this season adds even more initiatives that continue to bring together different disciplines & knowledge bases in new ways. We want to show that Atlanta understands that you can’t look in a new direction by looking harder in the same direction. Tanz is a good vehicle to illustrate that.”
“We envision performance sharing the center of conversation resonating across disciplines, of fresh ideas and forms. We want to provide people more choices, let them find their own way into the work, and let it happen to them. Collectivity is an urgent need, what does it mean to be a part of a community, through action? I want Atlanta to keep discovering ways, and always body to body, ” says Tanz curator and glo Founding Artist Lauri Stallings.
