About the Artist
T. Lang creates, writes and teaches poetic expressions of dance, which illustrates deep, arousing investigations relevant to issues of identity, history and community. Through the vehicle of contemporary modern dance with emphasis on the interdisciplinarity, Lang’s work communicates perspectives with depth and a movement style that captures the attention of the viewer with its evocative physicality, technical range and emotional viability. Her work is inspired by the desire to invite audiences into personal and subjective experiences of inspiration, family stories, shared history; a fascination with the connections in between; and the desire to investigate them together on the dance floor. After years of choreography, academia, and performance, Lang continues to explore new mediums, such as AR and VR technology, and various modes of collaboration, to immerse audiences in what she hopes are powerful, transformative experiences. T. Lang connects dance, space, technology, and creative collaborators to move audiences into a greater understanding of our past, present and future.
With commissions from the High Museum of Art, Goat Farm Arts Center, Flux Projects and more Lang stays engaged with the next generation of movement artists through her summer dance intensive SWEATSHOP and Founding Director and owner of The Movement Lab ATL, an interdisciplinary incubator for creativity T. Lang is an Associate Professor and inaugural department chair of Dance Performance and Choreography at Spelman College. She is also the 2022 Emory University Arts and Social Justice Fellow.
