migration series because you believe in something
OPENING February 12
glo launches our new durational project, because you believe in something, a debate constructed as requiems, moving from one of Atlanta's historic vacant buildings to another. We begin with Interlocking Tower, the gate keeper of Atlanta's grand Terminus Station in Downtown Atlanta. Built in 1905 by architect P. Thornton Marye, Interlocking Tower was used to control all of the switches into Atlanta's grandest station. glo will construct the site as a doc centered space for process, mourning, and fantastical activation, aiming to highlight Atlanta's growing volume of endangered places. because you believe in something will run through June 2017 at five like-minded spaces, including The Constitution Building and Morris Brown College campus.

site-based movement for people Hourglass exhibition Opening March 5
High Museum of Art
Stallings will construct choreographic mappings for two site-specific installation environments by artist Daniel Arsham, as part of Arsham's Hourglassexhibition at The High Museum of Art. Stallings choreography will be performed by glo people movers. In one area, a young girl will move through Arsham's installation consisting of a set of large hourglasses, and in another, a mature man will move through a complete Japanese Zen garden installation. Performances will occur in tandem every Sunday afternoon for the entire duration of the Hourglass exhibition.
performance installations in non-traditional spaces Tanz Farm Opening March 22
various public spaces in Atlanta
Tanz Farm, the production structure launched by glo and The Goat Farm Arts Center in 2012, returns March 22-26 with Japanese-born dancer and choreographer Eiko. A Body in Places is the omnibus title of Eiko's first solo project, and first foray into exploring her unique and riveting theater of movement out of stillness, shape, light and sound, in non-traditional spaces. Eiko is a MacArthur Genuis and Guggenheim Fellow. Her work has been presented world-wide, including Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Whitney Museum, and the Walker Center. Primary activities of Eiko's Tanz Farm residency include multiple performance installations in Midtown Atlanta, pleasure dance SHOPS and Artist as Migrant, a FEED conversation with Eiko, and Atlanta cultivators.
About us glo is a generative platform whose collaborative laboratory builds relationships, mixes identities, and realizes new possibilities while creating experimental works that induce vulnerability through constructed migrations of movement and community. A nomadic medium, glo's transhumance has included Creative Time, Big Boi of OutKast and the Dungeon Family, maestro Robert Spano, The Goat Farm Arts Center, and numerous Places In Peril across the American South.
