Since arriving from New York to pursue choreography in 2012, T. Lang - along with the T. Lang Dance ensemble - has consistently produced some of Atlanta’s most dynamic and expressive modern dance works. At the forefront of these performances is Post Up, a dance series that uses movement and technology to explore the desire to reconnect with love once lost. Each subsequent performance in Post Up has investigated different elements of this theme, such as ritual, order, and unification.
Post, the 4th and (likely) final installment of the series, serves as a natural conclusion to many of these ideas by simultaneously looking at the effects of past traumas and the complex beauty of regeneration and new life. Inspired by the book Help Me Find My People by Heather Andrea Williams, Post is a reflection on love, longing, and reconciliation during and after the years of the Reconstruction Era in America. This inspiration makes Fort McPherson, a 19th century military base in South Atlanta, the perfect venue for Post Up’s fourth installment. The performance will take place in a chapel on the grounds of the decommissioned base, which is lit primarily by a sequence of towering stained glass windows. This, mixed with the building’s old architecture and historical significance, creates a serene and atmospheric setting for T. Lang’s experimental and historically inspired vision.
In the spirit of Post’s dual themes of past pain and new life, the performers blend aggressive movements with tender moments, and the score juxtaposes experimental and abstract music with contemporary songs. T. Lang’s choreography focuses largely on hand movements and exaggerated conversational gestures and fuses these movements with a modern dance vocabulary that one would find in any contemporary setting.
Also, in continuation of Post Up’s blending of movement and technology, Post includes a collaboration with visual artists George Long and David Baerwalde, who have created a stop motion film that captures movement and color from different angles and perspectives, and will be projected on the wall above the dancers, allowing both performances to mirror each other.
Our handpicked access to Post includes VIP front row seating and access to an open bar. Don’t miss your chance to experience the one-of-a-kind final installment of a series that has overflowed with experimentation, expression, history, and the unique vision of one of Atlanta’s most exciting artists.
