Thoughts on gloATL

Read the review of "rapt" by Cynthia Bond Perry at

And some thoughts from keif about the show (not really a review):

Atlantans glo’d

What a great way to enjoy dance… great creation, dancers, venue, and summer evening. Equally enjoyable at this past weekend’s performance of rapt was the mass of people who were along for the ride—a large and diverse audience that packed the Woodruff piazza in anticipation, an audience that made the most of the social atmosphere, an audience that morphed as it moved, an audience that danced and chatted, an audience that lingered. Dance as a happening breaks down barriers to our craft and engages audiences.

Lauri Stallings and the collaborators of gloATL met all expectations of their namesake by creating a wonderful opportunity for “a group of individuals who congregate to witness a unique event.” In doing so, they did much to invigorate audiences and supporters of dance in a way that will benefit the entire dance community. They also demonstrated why local dance and the experience surrounding it are a great investment for arts organizations like the Alliance Theater and the Woodruff Arts Center who sponsored the event. Thanks and congratulations, Lauri & gloATL and everyone who supported their vision.
