Curated by Deer Bear Wolf’s Elizabeth Jarrett, Natural Selection started as a way to integrate artists of different disciplines in one space, exposing both the artist and audience to varying mediums of performance that they might not encounter otherwise. In an effort to de-compartmentalize local art and performance communities, Natural Selection is beneficial to all of Atlanta’s artist and culture-makers by creating a space for collaboration through a strong sense of artistic community and solidarity.
Each performance takes place in a different venue or community space in Atlanta. It was Jarrett’s goal to bring Natural Selection to a variety of neighborhoods to diversify the audience and afford people without transportation easier accessibility. It was also important to showcase the venues themselves, from well established Atlanta staples to underutilized and found spaces.
NATURAL SELECTION isn’t your run-of-the-mill variety show. It is a vessel for artistic exploration. Says curator Elizabeth Jarrett, “I curate by choosing a collection of performers whose work I respect and whose performances will compliment each other when placed in a group setting. Each performer is given 10 minutes with no rules or guidelines and I encourage each of them to try something that is a bit out of their comfort zone or something they've been wanting to try. Performances range from music to poetry to puppetry to performance art and so on. As a curator, I try to keep my audience and the creative climate of the city in mind.”
