Atlantans are still buzzing about gloATL’s series of inspired performances last summer in four ultra-public places ranging from the Lindbergh Center MARTA station to the Little Five Points shopping district.
Lauri Stallings’ movement troupe (the word “dance” doesn’t seem liquid enough to describe it) on Friday (July 6) kicks off another free series of “Liquid Culture” encounters with Atlanta architecture and people.
Here’s your planner for this “Utopia Station Series”:
8-9 p.m. Friday (July 6): 15th and Peachtree streets, Colony Square Plaza, in collaboration with Georgia Tech’s contemporary music ensemble-in-residence Sonic Generator
5:30-7 p.m. July 11: MARTA Lindberg Station
6:30-9 p.m. July 14: Little Five Points storefronts
8:30 p.m. July 20-21: Sol LeWitt’s “54 Columns” installation, Highland Avenue at Glen Iris Drive, in the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood, in collaboration with the Atlanta Opera. These series-concluding perfomances will involve vocalists Elizabeth Claxton, Megan Mashburn, Tim Miller and Heather Witt, accompanist Catherine Giel and 17 dancers. It’s a first-time collaboration between the two outfits set to some of opera’s masterpieces, including La Boheme and the Barcarolle duet from “Tales of Hoffman.”
