News: Bill T. Jones, Tentacle Tribe shows postponed; Lauri Stallings celebrated

Covid continues to cause havoc in Atlanta. Kennesaw State University’s Department of Dance has postponed dance company Tentacle Tribe’s visit because their home base, Montreal, is in Covid lockdown. Their performance of Ghost is now scheduled for February 25-26 at the Marietta Dance Theater.

The much-anticipated January 29 performance of What Problem?  by the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company has also been postponed, Georgia Tech Arts confirmed. No word when it will be rescheduled. This is the second time the company has postponed its Atlanta visit because of Covid.  It was originally slated to bring What Problem? to the Ferst Center for the Arts in October 2020.

Lauri Stallings, choreographer and founder of gloAtlanta, has changed the trajectory of conceptual, contemporary dance and site-specific performance in Atlanta and has a compassionate heart as well as a unique perspective on art-making. Now her work is being acknowledged beyond the usual arts circles. She’s been named one of Georgia Trend magazine’s 100 Most Influential Georgians for 2022. She is in good company. At the top of the alphabetical list is Stacey Abrams. The description for Stallings reads: “Dance may traditionally have been something performed in a theater, but Stallings has taken it out of the box and brought her work, which often focuses on Southern women and marginalized people, to venues as diverse as the National Center for Civil and Human Rights and the High Museum of Art.”
