  • NEST OF THE WEST: For their performance at the Wren's Nest, the dancers of Crossover Movement Arts will don steampunk-style gear, tubing and gauges for a performance involving jazz improvisation, story-telling, and dance.
The Decatur-based dance company Crossover Movement Arts will give a free performance at the Wren's Nest, the historic home of Atlanta writer Joel Chandler Harris in Atlanta's West End, on Saturday, October 1, at 4:30 pm. Visitors can also tour the house for free starting at 4 pm. The event is taking place as part of the Art on the Beltline series of public artworks and events.

The multi-disciplinary performance includes music from experimental jazz group Zentropy and story-telling from veteran storyteller Akbar Imhotep. The performance is a journey into the roots of Atlanta’s past with the dancers acting as tour guides through time: dancers will lead the audience on a short walk from the historic home of the longtime editor of the Atlanta Constitution and collector of the Uncle Remus stories through the surrounding neighborhood to a cul-de-sac abutting the Atlanta Beltline. (Maps will be available at the show).

Crossover Movement Arts will perform in “The West Zen” with Zentropy and Akbar Imhotep on Saturday, October 1, at 4:30 pm at the The Wren’s Nest House Museum, 1050 Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard (Free tours of The Wren’s Nest House Museum begin at 4 pm).
