On October 20, 2019 at 5:00 pm, Movements Arts Atlanta Director, Carolyn Stine McLaughlin and MAA student, Evelyn McLaughlin, will appear as part of Unseen Layers: the many roles of women. This theater-in-the-round dance event is presented by TTM Dance Collective and will take place in the TULA Arts Center Atrium, 75 Bennett Street NW, Atlanta Georgia 30309.
The McLaughlins will perform Isolation by Gail Mingledorff. The work, set to the music of Jim Cappell, depicts the first injury which causes an individual to set up emotional barriers. Intimate gestures, sweeping spirals and the effective use of a prop communicate joy, hesitation, control, confusion and defiance.
Gail Mingledorff and Carolyn Stine McLaughlin both danced with Southern Ballet of Atlanta during their early careers. In the 1980’s McLaughlin appeared in two ballets created by Mingledorff for the company; Pachabel and The Almost Original Recipe. The first, an abstract ballet to Pachabel’s iconic Cannon in D, and the latter a comedic ballet about the interactions of chickens.
