KSU Dance congratulates artist-in-residence Lauri Stallings

Stallings choreographed world premiere of “Maá”


The KSU Program in Dance congratulates artist-in-residence Lauri Stallings and the KSU chorus of 35 dance majors for the performance of "Maá" at Symphony Hall earlier this month. The gloATL performance, conducted by Atlanta Symphony maestro Robert Spano and featuring the Sonic Generator from Georgia Tech, received rave reviews from critics and audience members. 

Andrew Alexander, from Creative Loafing, raved “one of the most interesting elements was the use of student dancers from the nearby dance program at Kennesaw State University, for an added 'Physical Pause.'” ArtsCriticATL praised Stallings addition of the new scene “Physical Pause,” as having “such fraught meaning!” 

Ivan Pulinkala, director of the KSU Program in Dance praised the collaborative performance as an outstanding example of the community engagement partnerships within the program. “Our artistic partnership with gloATL and affiliation with KSU artist-in-residence Lauri Stallings provides our students with opportunities to perform at our city's leading arts venues and work with nationally recognized artists. It was truly an honor to see KSU dance students share the Woodruff Center Symphony Hall stage with Robert Spano, Sonic Generator and the artists from gloATL.”
