The High Museum performance on September 26 follows a partnership between CORE and the High on a Warhol-Picasso exhibit. That time, CORE initiated the collaboration. It is a testament to the success of the endeavor that the High Museum made the call this time. The piece is site-specific: It was created in this location rather than being re-staged in the space. It investigates home as place and home as relationship, and will unfold in an environment of 36 houses arranged in 3 rows of 12. The movement is “very athletic, physical dance,” according to Ms. Schroeder, making use of depth of field. The company worked closely with the visual artists to align with their concepts. We’re talking about a free, world premiere and live dance work; what could be better than that?

Next month, during France-Atlanta month, CORE will participate in a cultural exchange culminating in another premiere at the High Museum October 18. It will also make use of the houses, but they will be reconfigured for “Je Suis” (“I am”), with dancers from Atlanta’s sister city, Toulouse, joining CORE. It is also free and open to the public.
