MONSANTRA by Wendy Dechene & Jeff Schmuki

Because our food distribution systems are so muddled we want people to think about their food, where it comes from and where it may be going, by taking our remote control, or robotic plants to the streets.

Since practicing as an artist team Canadian artist Wendy DesChene and US artist Jeff Schmuki, have been awarded a residency at the American Academy in Rome and have exhibited in international institutions, including at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh and the Goethe Institute in Egypt.

Atlanta’s largest group of uncommon people doing wondrous things! This is The Imperial Opa Circus: creative entertainment to enchant, dazzle, and amaze.


Disguise Machine by Duncan L. Shirah

Elongation (excerpt) by Gardenhouse Dance

Choreography: Nicole Livieratos
Performer: Blake Beckham
Music: Laura Gibson and the Portland Cello Project

This is an in-process excerpt. This is part of the development of the work Elongation that will ultimately involve multiple sawhorses, a live horse, a performer, video projection and original music.

Gardenhouse Dance founder/director Nicole Livieratos was the first choreographer accepted for a Hambidge residency and has received several awards and honors for her choreography including the Mayor’s Fellowship in the Arts Award for Dance, a King Baudouin Foundation grant, and support from Idea Capital for new ideas in art.


Inside Out by Dana Lupton

Throughout the evening, Lupton will gather kinesthetic movements generated from stories guests share when answering the question, “When you were 14, what artist made a significant impact on your life?” Influenced by Celeste Miller’s choreographic process, Lupton will use this intimate interactive research structure to create original movement phrases inspired by guests’ memories.

Dana Marie Lupton co founder of Moving in the Spirit a nationally recognized youth development organization using dance to transform lives.


Death in the Rough by David L. Fisher

Actors: Bob Smith, Allen Stone, Joe McLaughlin, Chris Brooks, Jason Caldwell (Onion Man Productions and Lionheart Theatre Company)

Two men on a golfing outing discover a dead man. Again!

David Fisher is a local playwright and a regular with Onion Man Productions.

Something will happen,” asserts Jerry Cullum.

Three Elegant Bluegrass Songs by the Rosin Sisters

The Rosin Sisters are Barbara Panter-Connah, Jan Smith and Ann Whitley-Singleton, three fiddlers who combine tight vocal harmonies and energetic instrumentals (including guitar, banjo and bass) drawn from our rich and diverse Southern heritage of Roots music (Appalachian, Cajun, Blues and Honky Tonk).


Three World Folklorica Songs by Potpourri

As the name implies, “Potpourri” is a mixture of freeform genres and personalities, young and older, utilizing percussion, sitar, guitar, flute, and bass led by the captivating Venezuelan voice of Sonio Osio. Eclectic flavors smiling with South American Folklorica and American Sophistication.

DJ, Tim Degroot

The Rare Form DJ Crew is representative of a genderless musical experience that can be translated from a backyard barbecue, to a lounge type setting, to international super-clubs. Founded by DJ’s Tim DeGroot (a.k.a tD) and J. Posey (a.k.a. J.soL), Rare Form started it’s experience in 2001 as a collective of significant proportion and experience.


Lights by Michele Schuff

The installation of multiple cast resin lanterns lit by a singe transformer was inspired by and developed during residencies at The Hambidge Center in 2005 and 2007. The individual lights burn at different intensities, but collectively create a singe form. The lamp symbol has many meanings, but ultimately a lantern will light the dark. Courtesy of Whitespace Gallery.

Michele Schuff is a studio artist with The Atlanta Contemporary Art Center and a Fellow of the Hambidge Center and VCCA. Schuff’s work explores themes of light through encaustic painting and three-dimensional cast forms. Her work is held in private collections in the U.S. and U.K. Michele exhibits with Whitespace Gallery in Atlanta.
