Choreographer Lauri Stallings, whose gloATL company performances are as much quicksilver happenings as they are modern dance, will return to the Woodruff Arts Center with a site-specific premiere on July 23-24.
“Roem,” her third work at the Midtown center in gloATL’s inaugural season, will blend dance, music, multimedia and theatrical design. The production will feature music by Tom Sherwood of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Sonic Generator, Georgia Tech’s contemporary music ensemble-in-residence.
To be performed free both nights at 8 on the piazza outside the High Museum, “Roem” promises to speak to the issue of globalization. It will be the culmination of a five-week Woodruff residency.
