Best dance company: gloATL

Staff Pick

The emergence of dancemaker Lauri Stallings' GLOATL over the past year has been the artistic equivalent of a fire alarm going off in the middle of the night. Stallings and her troupe are interlopers; invaders of public space and consciousness. Their method of attack is rooted in Gaga, a performance technique pioneered by Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin. Gaga's so-called "movement language" has a balletic herky-jerkiness that bursts with athleticism and emotion. With gloATL, Stallings has eschewed the traditional stage format for venues such as Lenox Mall, the streets of Castleberry Hill, and the Woodruff Arts Center campus for her 360-degree audience/performer experiences. gloATL's 2009-10 season concluded with the epic multimedia performance Roem, setting the stage (so to speak) for the company's largest public work to date, scheduled for this fall. www.gloatl.com
