The Dance Project

Emory dance faculty Gregory Catellier and George Staib are showcasing their choreography this weekend with a concert called The Dance Project, presented at 7 Stages Theater in Atlanta. Here's the lowdown:

The Dance Project
7 Stages Theatre, 1105 Euclid Ave., Atlanta 30307

January 21-23, 8:00 p.m.
January 24, 3:00 p.m.

$20 general admission
$9 students

Gregory Catellier and George Staib celebrate their fourth choreographic collaboration with The Dance Project, Jan 21-24. In keeping with their collaborative history, The Dance Project is intensely physical, tenaciously musical, and potently emotional. Both choreographers will premiere three new works that purposefully break from their previous methodologies of choreography. Staib's new work is marked by sensitive theatricality, juxtaposed with a movement vocabulary that is original and riveting. Catellier has chosen to work with a predominantly male cast and has taken on the challenge of J.S. Bach's Chaconne. This concert will not be what you expect from these two choreographers. This project is sponsored in part by grants from the Emory College Center for Creativity & Arts and the University Research Committee of Emory University.
