"I could live no longer unloved and unloving. Who shall dwell fondly on my memory?"

About the Project

T. Lang Dance presents Post, the final installment of Lang’s four-part Post Up series. The series is inspired by the literature of Heather Williams’ Help Me Find My People, which explores the Reconstruction Era custom of newly freed men and women posting public ads announcing their search for lost loved ones. Through entangled aggressive movements and astonishingly tender moments, this work explores the familiar complexities of reunification.

Set inside an interactive revival tent, Post focuses on connecting historical past with present narrative using the bridge of dance and technology. Seeing the multiplicity of these two forms, T. Lang Dance collaborates with digital media engineers Jessica Anderson and Sebastian Monroy and visual artists George Long and David Baerwalde in re-imagining links between past, present and future. Post will break new ground merging contemporary dance and state-of-the-art techniques in performance technology, yielding a space where dancers can perform with a digitally-augmented responsive environment. This work investigates personal journeys of healing from lost memories while gaining a sense of resilience. Post steps inside the power of cosmic order and the extreme spectrums of adjusting to and accepting a new reality.

The Post Up series has been performed at The Goat Farm Arts Center, The High Museum of Art, and will soon activate a now abandoned church inside Fort McPherson, an American military base that operated from 1835 until its closing in 2011. This Spring we bring movement once again to this rich, historic site! Performances are every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from March 9th-25th 2017. T. Lang Dance is Joshua Archibald, Jacquelle Blythe, Jazmine Brooks, Indya Childs, Emma Lalor, Mandi B. Mpezo, and Scott Wheet.
