Core Dance welcomes Georgians to enjoy a free REEL Art reception on February 17th at 6pm. This reception will mark the closing of Gesture 3, featuring the work of Lori Teague and the opening of Gesture 4, featuring the work of Amador Artiga. Artiga's work will continue to stream on our storefront windows through March 30, 2023.
Lori C. Teague develops improvisational scores that invite play, kinesthetic listening, and choice. These processes seek to empower, expand awareness, and build new connections.
About the Filmmaker: Lori Teague
Teague continues to ask: How do we live in our body? She frames the ongoing relationship bodies have with societal norms and the distinctive manner in which we survive loss. Her ongoing practice of site-specific improvisational performance strengthens connections to the natural world and explores uninhabited spaces.
Teague joined the dance faculty at Emory University in 1994 where she teaches modern, improvisation, choreography, dance literacy, pedagogy, contact improvisation, and interdisciplinary courses combining movement and math concepts. She earned an MFA from The Ohio State University and a certification in Laban Movement Studies.
About the Filmmaker: Amador Artiga
Amador Artiga is a multidisciplinary artist specializing in visual dramaturgy, design, and production of video scenes, digital scenography, and installations for performing arts.
For more than 10 years, he has been creating visuals, being in charge of the design and content creation, and going hand in hand with the director in his or her creative journey.
His priority is understanding, embracing, and transforming concepts and ideas into the visual world. He is in love with movement no matter the form it takes, that’s why you can see pieces going from live action to motion graphics passing by stop motion, the tool is just a tool the matter is the message.
He has worked in Spain, France, and Czech Republic for private companies and government institutions, maintaining absolute love and dedication in every project, no matter the size of it.
REEL Art is a platform for original film installations - a contemporary art form that combines video technology with installation art - making use of the storefront windows of Core Dance’s studio building. Coupled with all aspects of the surrounding environment of the Decatur Square, passersby/the audience are affected by this ingenious visual experience. As an installation, this work is unique in its use and design for the Core Dance Studio windows.
For the 2022-23 REEL Art Series, Valerie Massadian (France), Michael Eckblad (USA), Lori Teague (USA), Amador Artiga (Czech Republic/Spain) and Loren McFalls (USA) will premiere video installation works commissioned by Core Dance and inspired by the theme, Gestures.
