The emergence of dancemaker Lauri Stallings' GLOATL over the past year has been the artistic equivalent of a fire alarm going off in the middle of the night. Stallings and her troupe are interlopers; invaders of public space and consciousness. Their method of attack is rooted in Gaga, a performance technique pioneered by Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin. Gaga's so-called "movement language" has a balletic herky-jerkiness that bursts with athleticism and emotion. With gloATL, Stallings has eschewed the traditional stage format for venues such as Lenox Mall, the streets of Castleberry Hill, and the Woodruff Arts Center campus for her 360-degree audience/performer experiences. gloATL's 2009-10 season concluded with the epic multimedia performance Roem, setting the stage (so to speak) for the company's largest public work to date, scheduled for this fall. www.gloatl.com less...

Artistic director Elizabeth Dishman’s newfound mission is to create dances that even you double-left-footed movement newbies can at least partially appreciate (you seem to be laughing and clapping at the right places, anyhow), and the dances she creates for the CORIOLIS DANCE PROJECT continue to be the best brain-buzz you can get outside a Mensa meeting. We loved this year’s playful Falling, a study of balance and its absence that included the debut of Israeli import Hila Kerekesh, a sublimely subtle new dancer on the Atlanta scene. Dishman is moving to NYC, so the Oct. 1 performance of a reworked Falling (at Emory University’s Performing Arts Studio) will be the company’s Atlanta swan song.

Currently celebrating its 10th anniversary, Ballethnic has, in addition to its regular rep performances, added two perennial family classics to the Atlanta scene, The Leopard's Tale and The Urban Nutcracker, as well as its exceptional youth educational programs, including the athletic Denseur Development Project, training male youths ages 7-21. In performance, the company's classically trained dancers combine traditional ballet technique with African and African-American dance to create an energetic form of movement and performance that is uniquely their own. less...
