Project Description

Tanz Farm

performance anthology

BLACK HOLE is a kaleidoscope experience using movement, light, and visual art. Although the title is derived from the cosmic phenomenon of a Black Hole, it is not a work on explaining/sharing the science of it. More so, it proposes to use the idea of the transformational environment of a Black Hole to create an atmosphere of mystery towards what is encompasses. What it can contain in it. BLACK HOLE proposes to engage an audience in a way that it condenses the experience deeply into a colorfully hypnotic journey, without exit. The work researches and shares a performance art odyssey, in which three gifted black artists (all of african diaspora) unite to create a trinity of vigor, afro-futurism, and embrace.

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 Shamel Pitts (New York), Eiko Otake ( New York),  Niv & Oren (Tel Aviv), zoe/juniper (Seattle), Malcolm Low/Formal Structure (New York), Fabien Prioville (Dusseldorf), Staibdance (Atlanta), Gustavo Ramirez Sansano/Ballet Hispanico New York, Catellier Dance Projects (Atlanta), Sidra Bell (New York), Core Dance/ Amanda K. Miller(Atlanta), Pierre Regalt( Paris), Erik Thurmand(Atlanta, NY),

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.
