“Sometimes you wake up. Sometimes the fall kills you. And sometimes, when you fall, you fly.” – Neil Gaiman
The rules of gravity need not apply.
FALL is about finding the places where anything is possible…where the stage, and the audience, is anywhere and everywhere.
FALL is about creating a universe in which super heroes exist. Blurring the lines between art and life, flying and falling…
The quick and easy description is that FALL is a contemporary dance company specializing in aerial dance (hanging from the ceiling), site specific work (climbing on things that are not typically climbed on), as well more traditional dance works (where we usually, though not always, have at least one foot on the ground). FALL’s goal is to utilize both vertical and horizontal spaces to create innovative, inspiring and unexpected art, with an emphasis on collaboration with other artists and genres.
In 2010, dancer/choreographer Rebekah Hampton left her work with Perpetual Motion/Modern Dance Oklahoma, and the Oklahoma City Ballet, to form FALL, Nashville’s premiere aerial and contemporary dance company. Drawing on her multi-disciplinary background, Rebekah’s choreography blends modern dance, contemporary ballet, and improvisation, with a mix of aerial fabric and invented structures.
