Lauri Stallings

Choreographer and Founder/gloATL

Lauri Stallings, founding artist of the Atlanta performance troupe glo, was wrapping up a choreographic residency with the Atlanta Ballet when one of her collaborators, Big Boi of OutKast and Dungeon Family fame, asked what she planned to do next. Her answer was to relocate to our town, launch glo, and proceed to wow audiences all over town — literally. Her dancers have made movement into art inside and outside the High Museum, on the streets of Castleberry Hill, and amid the pillars of Sol LeWitt's cinder block sculpture in Old Fourth Ward, to name just a few places. Funnily enough, Stallings hates to drive but finds plenty of places to walk in this car-centric city.

gloATL is a southern women artist-led generative platform often found making space in marginalized communities to hold questions about physical and emotional strategies for coming together, deep listening, while shifting the understanding of dance from traditional studio practice to a more conceptual base of transforming the social environment.
