The Goat Farm Arts Center presents T. Lang Dance | POST UP
2014 Goat Farm Arts Center A.I.P. recipient, T. Lang creates "Post Up", an exploration of the delusional hope of being reunited with a loved one. Following multi-generational conversations on love and personal diary entries that beg for the return of a lost loved one, this work investigates the search for love as it tends towards self-destruction. Moving from entangled aggressive movements to staggeringly tender moments, Post Up demonstrates our search for genuine belonging.
Referring to newspaper "posts" by freed slaves in an attempt to find a loved one, both the phrase and piece renew this forgotten historical meaning. Lang recovers these lost historical artifacts and connects their essential form to the modern day. She seeks to uncover the untold truths the jarring and sour notes in our history that have been hidden in order to encourage community recognition and dialogue.
"Post Up" will also incorporate the work of composer John Osburn and Deigratia Daniels, Video Interactive Engineer, who will create computer-vision interactive systems to offer dancers a platform within an immersive virtual environment.
"Post Up" will push the boundaries of dance to create a multi-media experience that will submerge the audience in a rich audio and visual adventure.
