Project Description

Tanz Farm

performance anthology

Our Tanz Farm project returns with BLACK VELVET, an international art piece that aims to share and reflect on the colorfulness of blackness-especially in regards to black women- in a relationship of love, compassion and camaraderie. In the work, creators and performers Shamel Pitts and Mirelle Martins research and share the sensibility of ideals, models, and textures as a projection of self.

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 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), and Sidra Bell (New York).

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.
