Series IV Artists:
Greg Catellier | Catellier Dance Projects (Atlanta)
Founded in 2010, Atlanta-based Catellier Dance Projects (CDP) creates intimate, multi-media dance performances that contemplate the empirical. Dedicated to works that cut across personal, social and political layers, CDP engages multiple performance modalities to develop sophisticated movement, compelling video, thoughtful text and adventurous stage design. Choreographer, dancer, lighting designer and fearless leader Greg Catellier collaborates with performers and artists to build work that has been called “smartly personal, transparently accessible and deeply funny.” Following the success of Tempo (May 2011), the final frontier (May 2012) and E (January 2013), CDP is currently developing Corpus Mysteriis, the fourth and final part in a series of evening-length pieces exploring the fundamental dimensions of dance.
Gustavo Ramirez Sansano(Spain)
Gustavo Rimerez Sansano (Spain) is based in Vaencia, Spain. He was appointed Artistic Director of Luna Negra Dance Theater in 2009 after directing TITOYAYA Dance Project in Valencia, Spain for four years. Sansano has been the recipient of numerous awards for his choreography, including first prizes at the Ricard Moragas competition in Barcelona, the Dom Perignon choreographic competition in Hamburg, and at Las Artes Escénicas de la Comunidad Valenciana. His work has been featured at “Les Etoiles de Ballet” in Cannes and the IX International Festival of Ballet in Miami. He has been commissioned to create works for Compania Nacional de Danza, the Hamburg Ballet, Budapest Dance Theater, Ballet Junior de Genève and Nederlands Dans Theater II, among others.
Sansano’s first work for Ballet Hispanico, El Beso, is a high-spirited look at the nuances of a kiss set to Spanish Zarzuela music and featuring original costumes by Venezuelan fashion designer Angel Sanchez. The New York Times raves that it is “full of bold, astute, unexpected choices.”
Celebrating 43 years of dance and culture, Ballet Hispanico is recognized as the nation’s premier Latino dance organization. Led by Artistic Director Eduardo Vilaro, the Company boasts a rich and diverse repertory of over 100 works by the foremost choreographers and emerging artists of our time. The works expand on founder Tina Ramirez’s legacy of exploring the diversity of Latino culture through a fusion of Latin and contemporary dance powered by theatricality and passion. The Company has performed for an audience of nearly 3 million, throughout 11 countries, on 3 continents. Through the work of its professional company, school of dance, and community arts education programs, Ballet Hispanico celebrates the dynamic aesthetics of the Hispanic diaspora, building new avenues of cultural dialogue and sharing the joy of dance with all communities.
Tanz Farm is anchored in the agency of risk-taking to expand boundaries, and render experimentation with ideas and philosophies in contemporary performance.
The anthology curators are Lauri Stallings, founding artist, glo and Goat Farm Arts Center founder Anthony Harper.

About The Goat Farm Arts Center
Art, design & technology dwellings. Pushing culture forward through Built Environments that augment interaction and excite new thinking.
Also, a major Visual & Performing Arts Center primarily exploring experimental and innovative works the Goat Farm is a laboratory where creative risk is nurtured & celebrated. The Goat Farm executes this mission through an unconventional for-profit arts model and does not operate on public funding, donations or grants.
The Goat Farm has recently begun to cultivate small technology startups. Art, performance and technology "colliding" inside the same Built Environment will lead the diverging disciplines to places they could not reach on their own & go beyond the sum of each contributor.
Currently developing our 1st Satellite location called Erikson Clock, this Built Environment will commingle artists and performers with scientists, engineers & mathematicians.
Our environments abate the finiancial and social costs of getting these different fields of practice interacting and exploring unfamiliar systems of thought and solutions.
Believing the arts to be an economic driver for Atlanta, the Goat Farm Arts Center provides its performance and exhibition halls for free through a curatorial process. Once selected the Goat Farm invests in and works with the artists and/or performance groups to actualize the concept.
All Goat Farm Recipients receive its AIP (Arts Investment Package) which includes financial assistance, direct funding, production assistance, marketing assistance and rehearsal / performance / exhibition / classroom space. The Goat Farm AIP vehicle invests over $150,000 annually in arts funding, financial assistance and in-kind contributions.
Founded by choreographer Lauri Stallings and production specialist Richard Carvlin, glo debuted on the campus of the High Museum of Art in July 2009, and is a 2013 Robert Rauschenberg Foundation SEED Grantee for its fearlessness, innovation and multidisciplinary approach, with works involving 51 creators—conductors, choreographers, filmmakers, dancers, visual artists and fashion designers—producing experiences that are part choreography and part interactive art installation. glo has given 150 performances of 50 unique productions, from Atlanta to the rural towns of Georgia, and from New York to Art Basel: Miami, and makes its home in the 116-year old Factory Space, Goodson Yard, at the Goat Farm Arts Center.
