brassmeadow/High Museum

In "brassmeadow," Staibdance ponders the joy of whims, the ease of the happy-go-lucky, and the toll such sunny dispositions can take on those close to the frivolity. When does joy yield joy and when does it yield annoyance? Within and throughout the rich landscape of the High Museum of Art, seven dancers cajole, bustle, imagine, and deliver a highly physical and visceral journey into the slippery world of carefree abandon.

Performances are Friday, September 23rd & 30th starting at 7:30pm. This event is free on the Sifly Piazza, weather permitting. In the event of rain, Staibdance will perform in the Robinson Atrium.

"moat" Premier

  • Performing Arts Studio

Following Staibdance's successful 2015 premiere of Attic comes moat, an evening-length exploration of human migration and relocation for 13 dancers. With moat, artistic director George Staib reflects on his memories of immigrating from Iran to a small Pennsylvania town during the Iran Hostage Crisis. Fueled by heightened anti-Middle Eastern sentiment in the United States, some locals reacted with hostility, throwing tear gas into the family's yard and bullying the kids at school. The family faced -- as many do -- the cultural assimilation conundrum: how much should/can people change to fit the surrounding culture? What traditions will they give up in the name of fitting in? What is too important and remains intact?

June 3 at 7:00 & 9:00pm and June 4 at 7:00 & 9:00pm. 

Tickets: $20 online and at the door; $15 students and seniors with ID at the door only.
