Tanz Farm’s mission is anchored in the agency of risk-taking, to expand boundaries and support for new ideas, languages, and structures centered in live performance. Launched in 2012 by glo and The Goat Farm Arts Center, the anthology’s roster of artists includes Niv & Oren (Tel Aviv), zoe/juniper (Seattle), Malcolm Low/Formal Structure (New York), Fabien Prioville (Dusseldorf), Staibdance (Atlanta), Catellier Dance Projects (Atlanta), and Sidra Bell (New York).
The anthology is a joint vision of a generative platform and hybrid art center to establish a historic factory space as an inter/national destination for current practices and philosophies in contemporary performance. Primary activities include performance series and resources that provide artists with free space, advocacy, and marketing, and a range of public initiatives that stimulate greater access and social involvement between artists and community. All Tanz Farm programming is framed around a remarkable 117-year old factory space, Goodson Yard, at The Goat Farm Arts Center.
