GOArts is short for Georgia Open Arts Month which takes place each October.
It's a collective campaign to raise awareness about arts in our area.

Last October, I took up a challenge to see 31 shows in 31 days and blog about it... in the end, I saw 41.
Sure, it was a bit tiring but it was also an amazing opportunity.

The column on the left is a linked schedule of everything I saw.
For a more logical read of this blog o'adventures, scroll down to the first entry and start reading there.

I'm not a reviewer, nor am I an art critic.
I aim to raise public awareness about the great tapestry of arts & culture in our area and inspire you to get out there and enjoy it.

Not Forgot (Event #28)

They zipped into and out of town, leaving The Ferst Center audience on their feet in steady applause. Parsons Dance teamed up with the East Village Opera Company for their production of REMEMBER METhis union reflects a trend among recent dance performances here in Atlanta -- an integration of dancers, musicians, singers, & multi-media.  It's a theme currently being discussed within the local dance community.  For the Atlanta premier of REMEMBER ME, there is unanimous consensus among my circle of peers that this was a successful integration where nothing distracted from the other--the visual images and video helped set the tone and gave us a sense of place, the dancers and singers were inseparable in the creation of a character and both gave high energy performances.  (Web image of Parsons Dance REMEMBER ME)

The Ferst Center has a really strong season of performances this year with something that is sure to appeal to you.  Here are the rest of the dance companies they have booked for this year: Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo, Ballet Folklorico de Mexico de Amalia Hernandez, Pilobolus, and Rasta Thomas' Bad Boys of DanceIn addition to these great performers, a few of our own will take the stage at the Ferst Center for holiday entertainment. Ballethnic returns with their annual Urban Nutcracker Nov 19-22.
