It's that time again. If you missed the debut of choreographer Daryl Foster's all-male dance production LIFT last year then you don't want to make the same mistake in 2011.
LIFT is a bold concept that brings men to the forefront of dance for an intimate look into the private, and not-so-private lives of the men we all know. This year’s show brings the work of nine diverse male choreographers to the stage; presenting dance styles ranging from contemporary to hip hop.
After its successful 2010 sold-out debut, LIFT returns to the Woodruff Arts Center and unveils a 2-day run May 6 & 7, 2011.
“LIFT is a project whose time has come," Atlanta choreographer and LIFT founder Daryl Foster tells loldarian.com. “The South has a history of cultivating great artists only to lose them to larger cities like New York or L.A; now Atlanta welcomes its turn." You may recall our interview with Foster prior to the debut of LIFT last year. You can watch it here.
Joining Foster in LIFT again this year is Juel Lane, an Atlanta native and creator of the memorable same-sex duet in last year's show featured on loldarian.com.
This year’s showings are May 6 at 8 p.m., May 7 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. For more information on LIFT at the Woodruff Arts Center in Atlanta May 6 & 7, 2011 and its upcoming projects, please visit www.liftdance.org.
