Made from recycled and reclaimed materials, the Ponce City Express was built as an homage to traveling through the South by railway.

For creatives living in Atlanta, Binders isn’t just a one-stop-shop for all things art supply, it’s a way of life. Originally opened in 1955, Binders was founded by Moe and Joe Krinsky, also founders of the Atlanta staple, Moe’s & Joe’s Tavern in Virginia Highland.

In 2001, Jay Shapiro and Howard Krinsky, Moe’s son, revived the Binders business. After Jay’s untimely passing in 2010, Howard has continued to champion the Binders business with the mission to give back and be a part of the arts community.

Celebrating their 60th anniversary this year, Binders has locations in Buckhead, Ponce City Market and in Charlotte, North Carolina. All locations share the mission to promote personal growth through education, arts awareness, and by giving back to creative communities. “Owning Binders has given me a tremendous responsibility to those that count on us as an employer and source,” said Howard.

In addition to keeping shelves stocked with the very best in art supply, Binders takes their commitment to supporting their community seriously. The store has recently started to work with WonderRoot as they convert the former Tech High School into the WonderRoot Center for Arts & Social Change. This 54,000 square foot facility will be a fantastic hub for art in Atlanta.

When you ask Krinsky what it is that makes the Atlanta arts community so special, he’ll tell you that the vibrant, ever expanding community of creatives are now choosing Atlanta over LA or NY to launch their career.

And Howard’s favorite part of having a Binders location at Ponce City Market? “Ponce City Market has a historical relevance to the city that has been restored to all its glory and then some,” Krinsky said. “ You can feel it when you walk around the site. It’s hard to describe. It’s really something you need to experience for yourself.”

As for future plans for more Binders locations, Howard says they are focusing on one store at a time but that there could be other Binders in the future. If you ask about the secret to Binder success Howard will tell you that it’s easy. “Keep it simple, focused, and fun,” he said. “Atlanta is booming and there is tremendous growth and opportunity.”

Up Right Atlanta, a collaborative performance between visual and performance artist Nick Cave and Atlanta-based choreographer T. Lang, will be more than just a stunning work of dance and movement – it will be an epic experience for the entire city to share in together.

Up Right Atlanta presented by Flux Projects, will take over Ponce City Market on April 24-26 during an incredible display of dance, art and design in an active construction zone within PCM’s Central Food Hall. Local choreographer and Spelman College faculty member, T. Lang, will reveal a brand new piece in collaboration with Nick Cave and his renowned Soundsuits.

We sat down with T. to discuss her background in dance, her inspiration for Up Right Atlanta, and working with Cave’s Soundsuits to create a one-of-a-kind performance.

 

 

Can you give a brief synopsis of your dance background and what brought you to Spelman College?

I received a BFA and MFA in Performance and Choreography from University of Illinois Urbana Champaign and NYU Tisch School of the Arts respectively.  I danced with Marlies Yearby's Movin Spirit Dance Theatre before I began my choreographic career in New York City.  While I was presenting my work in the city, I was teaching as a visiting artist at several college institutions. I was an artist- in- residence at Spelman College in early spring of 2008.  While I was in residence the college offered me a tenured track position with their drama and dance department. Joining Spelman's faculty is a full circle moment for me. I wanted to attended Spelman for undergrad however, they did not have a dance program.

 

Where have you drawn inspiration for choreography?

Nick shared with me that the opening section of the performance must evoke a feeling of cleansing while still being explosive. He wants a feeling of celebration to open the work. Along with his new Soundsuits that he will debut, there is one suit that resembles an exaggerated version of a drum major. I have been exploring movement vocabulary from Jackson State University's J5 Drum Majors, one of my favorite HBCU bands that holds a personal significance for me too.  I decided to deconstruct and investigate that movement in hopes to create a unique movement language for that suit. 

I have been inspired by Nick's Soundsuits. Not only has the material for the suits inspired the choreography, but Nick's intention and significance for the construction of the suits for Up Right provided a starting point to create dance phrases. 

 

How has the process been in making the selection of performers?

My formula for selecting performers has always been seeking those who display a certain grit in their performance. Technique can always be taught and honed but seeing performers' true essence and uninhibited passion captures my attention. The audition process for Up Right was difficult because Atlanta artists showed up and showed out!

How have the design of the Soundsuits affected your choreography?

The suits add another level of awareness for me as I create the movement. Being aware of multiple ways the suits can swing or pulse for example, brings more possibilities for movement invention.

How is this performance different than others you have choreographed in the past?

My company members of T. Lang Dance tease me for putting them in costumes that expose them… literally! With Nick's Soundsuits, the exposure is vastly different than what I am normally use to. Though the dancers will be completely covered and unidentifiable, the experience of exposure will be different for them. Once the Soundsuits are on, there is this sense of armor protecting you.  I am curious to know what type of transformative experience the performers will have as dance and embody the intent. Will the performers have a new understanding of exposure though being in a fully covered ensemble that is unlike their norm?

 

Did anything specific about Atlanta inspire you during your creative process?

I teach an advanced choreography course to graduating seniors from Spelman and Morehouse College.  I selected 3 students who have excelled in the course to join me in the workshop process for Up Right. The workshop process allows time for the development of creative research before I go into the rehearsal process with the cast.  My students from the AUC provided an energy and insight that inspired further development and experience for Up Right – I gave the task to my students to create the spatial patterns for the show.  They personally challenged me every step of the way to dig deeper and abstract further yet hinting at familiar movements in order to create an engaging and unpredictable experience.

If you haven’t heard about it yet, Atlanta is in for something huge. We’re so excited to begin preparing for a ground-breaking performance presented by Flux Projects on April 24-26 as performance artist Nick Cave unveils new mind blowing Soundsuits during a choreographed event at Ponce City Market called “Up Right Atlanta.”

Nick Cave, a Chicago-based performance artist, fabric sculptor, and educator, will bring to life the construction within Ponce City Market while working with Spelman College professor and choreographer, T. Lang. Dancers will don Cave’s custom Soundsuits while utilizing PCM’s future Food Hall for performance.

Attendees will be a part of a historical event for Flux Projects, the Atlanta-based arts organization dedicated to bringing exceptional and surprising temporary public art to the city. Cave’s mission with Up Right Atlanta will be to utilize the Soundsuit to “pass on the power to be oneself” and can be described as “a rite of passage on an initiation.”

We had the opportunity to chat with Nick Cave about his amazing Soundsuits, what makes Atlanta so unique, and what we can expect to see from his upcoming performance with Flux Projects.

What was your inspiration for the performance for this project?

We are all born special and for many, somewhere along the way, they forget that. This work is for these folks specifically but think we can all use a hand up to be our most powerful and best selves. It’s then we can step into our world and do right.

What materials did you use to create the Soundsuits?

Various. There are armatures made of metal that support myriad hand made objects. Some synthetic hair, some found objects, pipe cleaners and such. The body suits are entirely made of synthetic raffia.

When you begin to create a Soundsuit, where do you initially draw inspiration for the design?

It all comes about from moving and mixing materials until I discover the feeling I am looking for. This particular group of suits is about passing on the power to be oneself. It is a right of passage on an initiation.

How would you describe your performances to someone who has never seen them before?

They are events or installations that allow the viewer to dream as they did when they were a child. Time and space as we experience it in the moment is qualified by all we’ve been taught, seen and experienced. I hope that my fork sets the stage for an open palette or place of naiveté.

How has it been to work with T. Lang?

T is amazing. The moment I meet her I knew we had a similar spirit. I can’t wait to see what she creates with my work.

What does it mean to you to develop Up Right Atlanta?

This is an opportunity for us to all reflect on the greatness that Atlanta has to offer and to give it the power to be. It is a critical and fantastic time for Atlanta and I am excited to contribute my work to its rebirth.

Photo by James Prinz Photography

How is this performance different from others you have done in the past?

All my performances are different. They are born of the location and made unique by the people we work with and collaborate with in each city. I never know exactly what it will be but know its potential. We don’t bring a show to a city, we build a show at the city.

What was your favorite restaurant in Atlanta?

Twisted Soul. It’s a new restaurant my dear friend Deborah VanTrece just opened.

Did anything specific about Atlanta inspire you during the creative process?

Flux projects did a great job of helping us understand the city. They also introduced us to many talented potential collaborators. It is a comfortable city for me and feels like home.

Is there anything specific that you’d like for people to leave the performance thinking, feeling, or learning?

That’s it…think, feel and learn.
