About The Event
Glo choreographer, Lauri Stallings, presents a socially distanced land art activation Sept. 10 and Sept. 12 featuring dancer Mechelle Tunstall and musician EmmoLei Sankofa performing on a 2.5-acre lot in Midtown that has been sown with wildflowers. EmmoLei will perform both days from 8-9p in a 1:1 activation with dancer, Mechelle Tunstall. Produced in partnership with the Dewberry Foundation, the event is part of Glo’s initiative to support local essential workers while creating a Midtown spot where people from all walks of life — especially those from marginalized communities — can “heal, hope and reach far,” Stallings said, even while socially distanced. The sloping grounds will be plotted for small groups, sidewalks will be sectioned off, and people in cars can watch from their vehicles. (6-10 p.m. Sept. 10 & 12. Free. Southwest corner of 17th and Peachtree Street NW, Atlanta. gloATL.org) This site-specific micro prairie is an invitation to join with community and feed our consciousness through the art of choreography and enacting social duties related to place, the body, and environment.
