Well, Le Flash turned out to be the raw, organic, casual entertaining evening I had hoped for. Many unexpected creations, lots of milling about, an atmosphere to just socialize, and an authentic backdrop--the Castleberry Hill neighborhood. Kudos to the folks who participated in the community effort to create an inspired happening.
Ate at Slice -- They were slammed & the staff stayed uber cool. Two thumbs up for the pizza!
There was a nice confluence of dancers & dance makers in attendance last night, both as performers and as spectators supporting their (our) peers. (It was great to run in to y'all.) Without a doubt, gloATL kicked it up a notch last night. Audiences were truly intrigued and trekked everywhere with those dancers, hugging them even closer than they did at rapt. Lauri Stallings and the company & crew create a complete experience, making us very aware of the nuances of our surroundings where they perform. They adeptly use dance to draw our attention to the varities of the landscape, soundscape, built environment, and technological interfaces.
Daniel Timms provided the ultimate entertainment for the after party -- the famous Iron Pour down by the Elliot Street Pub.
Do we HAVE to wait a year to do it all again?
