staibdance presents “s n a p”

“s n a p,” the newest work by Atlanta-based contemporary dance company staibdance is an investigation of the moment before personal or global history is made.

When do we decide enough is enough? How long can we live in the wanting of change before taking the first harrowing step? Inspired by the collective unrest, curiosity, and frustration of the French people during the reign of Louis XVI and moved by the decision to storm the Bastille, staibdance explores these and other questions.

“Every revolution, whether personal or society, is born of unrest,” says artistic director George Staib, “Anxiety, fear, excitement, or doubt percolate until the center cannot hold, and we make the decision to act.”

T. Lang Dance presents excerpts from "Post Up"

Atlanta-based choreographer T. Lang returns with a new work after her acclaimed 2012 full-length debut “Mother/Mutha.” The piece, titled “Post Up,” examines the longing for love as it tends towards self-destruction. 

Moving from entangled aggressive movements to staggeringly tender moments, T. Lang’s “Post Up”, delves deeply into American history and its avoided complexities. Referring to newspaper “posts” by freed Americans in an attempt to find a loved one, “Post Up” relates to our strong need to belong, to ground oneself in a sense of community – which withstands all trials and the test of time. 

Performance November 14-16, 2013 at 8 p.m. 
Tickets ($20 general admission; $12 seniors/students with valid ID) available at
