***ALL PERFORMANCES WILL HAVE TICKETS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE AT THE DOOR AFTER ONLINE TICKET SALES HAVE ENDED***
Presented by glo & The Goat Farm Arts Center
Tanz Farm is back for its second season! With performances and initiatives running from October 2013 through May 2014, season two promises to bring the best talent from around the world to Atlanta's Goodson Yard Performance Hall at the Goat Farm Arts Center in West Midtown.
Tanz Farm is happy to bring Niv Sheinfeld and Oren Laor to Atlanta for the first series of performances and initiatives of the season. They will be joined by Canadian artist C.D. Howe who will exhibit a sound installation during Series 1.
"Two Room Apartment" brings Sheinfeld & Laor to the stage for a duet that reflects on their
relationship as partners in life and as creators. Both personal and political, the work examines boundaries in various contexts: physical borders such as between territories or between two rooms, but also non-physical borders, such as the one between life and performance, and the boundaries that the individual sets for himself. The work uses a simple dance language and a minimalist aesthetic, and explores the notion of life as a framework in which a precise, almost compulsive repetition of customs and behaviors takes place. The work suggests a new and contemporary reading to the original performance created by Liat Dror and Nir Ben Gal that premiered in 1987 in Tel-Aviv. It is considered a milestone in the development of independent Israeli choreography, and it also received impressive international acclaim: the work had won several awards at the time, among them the Bagnolet Competition for Choreography.
