In a summer of Hollywood superheroes, the 2011 documentary Disabled But Able to Rock presents the most compelling story of an ordinary person with an extraordinary alter ego. Local director Blake Myers profiles Atlanta's Betsy Goodrich, aka Danger Woman, a high-functioning autistic woman who likes to dress as a superhero and fight the forces of "homophobia, race-ophobia and disable-phobia," largely through her ear-splitting karaoke performances. Disabled But Able to Rock presents the complexities of living with a mental disability as well as the joyous embrace of life that has given Goodrich a cult following. dangerwomanmovie.com. less...

Finding venues, getting exposure and connecting to potential audiences have long been major challenges for Atlanta's independent dancers and choreographers. But recently, an exciting new energy has been buzzing through the local dance scene. Like Atlanta's increasingly robust emerging visual art scene, ATL dance has also caught the collaboration bug, forming alliances among artists, between companies and across disciplines. Dance Truck's July 2011 production, PLOT, at the Goat Farm used an army of visual artists, videographers, designers, tech crew and volunteers to get a gorgeous production off the ground for a series of sold-out shows. Independent dancers banded together to produce the strong mixed program Magnetc Drift at the neglected Magnetic Theater in Reynoldstown in May. Choreographer Nicole Livieratos got up close and personal with poet Patricia Henritze for the intimate ongoing series Proximity. To top it all off, the meetings, blog, and events calendar of the new dance service org DanceATL have become an important focal point for Atlanta's independent dancers and choreographers as they gather and plan for their long overdue takeover of the city. danceatl.org. less...
