Project Dance, Voices Carry and more


Radio City Music Hall Rockettes captain Cheryl Cutlip founded the New York-based dance ensemble PROJECT DANCE in 2001 after the Sept. 11 attacks to help New Yorkers heal. Every year since then the troupe has performed on a makeshift stage at 44th Street and Broadway. In 2002, Project Dance hit the road for a world tour. It comes to Atlanta for the first time this weekend for an afternoon's worth of performances at Centennial Olympic Park. Free. Noon-7 p.m. Centennial Olympic Park Amphitheater, 285 International Blvd. 404-222-7275. (Stephanie Junca)

For Emory University creative writing professor Natasha Trethewey, her recent receipt of the Pulitzer Prize for poetry has had a pleasant side effect. It gave local media an excuse to devote coverage to a subject typically treated as a niche interest (or ignored altogether). Whether the press attention translates into bigger audiences should be obvious at VOICES CARRY, a poetry and spoken-word performance bringing together some of the city's best and best-known poetic performers, including Collin Kelley, Megan "Dr. Madelyn Hatter" Volpert and Kodac Harrison. Free. 8 p.m. Composition Gallery, 1388 McLendon Ave. 678-982-9764. (Andisheh Nouraee)
