Don’t miss: Glowing at “Le Flash”
The event called “Le Flash-Atlanta,” an experimental photography jamboree, has added a dance component that’s now the talk of the town. Choreographer Lauri Stallings’ modern-ballet troupe named gloATL seized the Woodruff Arts Center plaza for an outdoor dance-music-def poetry happening, and it felt like a cultural watershed. Stallings’ troupe will headline Le Flash’s Oct. 2 gala in the Castleberry Hill district in downtown Atlanta.
Details and locations will be announced just before the event. www.gloATL.com, www.leflash-atlanta.com.
