Tanz Farm produces unique performance projects by artists and creates chance-of-a-lifetime experiences for our Atlanta community. We make significant investments in the performance community to help increase the quality of new work being created and exchanged. In doing so, we contribute to the vitality of arts and culture in the Southeast by helping launch careers while growing audiences for experimental performances. Launched in 2012 by glo and the Goat Farm Arts Center, Tanz’s mission is anchored in the agency of risk-taking and expanding boundaries through bold ideas and philosophies centered in performance. Since its inception, Tanz has featured seminal performances by zoe/juniper (Seattle), Niv Sheinfeld& Oren Laor (Tel Aviv), Staib Dance (Atlanta), Fabien Prioville (Dusseldorf), glo (Atlanta), Sidra Bell New York, Amanda K. Miller/ CORE Dance (Atlanta), Catellier Dance Projects (Atlanta), Pierre Rigal ( Toulouse), Gustavo RimerezSansano (Valencia) with Ballet Hispanico New York and L.A.'s ate9dANCEcOMPANY. Our primary activities include a 4-part performance series, resources that provide selected artists with technical residencies, free space, advocacy and marketing, as well as a range of public initiatives that provide greater access to in-depth information and social involvement between artists and our community. All Tanz Farm programming is framed around a remarkable 116-year old historic factory space called Goodson Yard, at the Goat Farm Arts Center. Curators Lauri Stallings, founding artist, glo and Anthony Harper, owner of The Goat Farm Arts Center. Tanz Farm takes place at the Goat Farm Arts Center 1200 Foster St. Atlanta 30318 Write us: info@tanzfarm.com www.tanzfarm.com gloatl.org
