With highly physical contemporary movement as the cornerstone, glo will guide the next generation of artists on a journey that values independent thinking and problem solving through fresh exploration and a tenacious, communal work ethic found in today’s contemporary performance. We aim for clear speaking, among all movement languages.
Daily process: The first half of the day begins with technique class followed by improvisation and experimentation. At least twice a week this part of the day is followed by public intervention, or what gloATL calls “mapping.” Following lunch, the second half of the day is devoted to choreographic process by visiting choreographers and glo founding artist Lauri Stallings.
3-weeks (July 1-July 20) comprehensive curriculum devoted to investigating tools and language current in today’s contemporary performance field. Each day will consist of a laboratory for applying the tools and philosophies of glo into the performance realm. Side by side glo dancers, four new works in 14 days are created and performed in four public spaces of Atlanta. Collaborators in music, opera, dance-theater and visual art are a part of the unique creative process.
