“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…
FALL is a contemporary dance company using all the instruments at our disposal to create art that both inspires and entertains. By incorporating aerial dance (hanging from the ceiling), site specific work (climbing on things that are not typically climbed on), more traditional dance elements (where we usually, though not always, have at least one foot on the ground), and collaborations with other artists and genres, FALL moves in both vertical and horizontal spaces to make innovative, exciting and unexpected art.
Upon arriving in Nashville, Rebekah founded FALL, Nashville’s first aerial and contemporary dance company. Drawing on her multi-disciplinary background that includes ballet, modern dance, aerial dance, jazz, capoeira, stage combat, mime, and gymnastics, Rebekah’s work blends classical and contemporary dance with a mix of aerial fabric and invented structures, examining how the use of various apparatus’ can provide a broader range of movement possibilities, opportunities to explore more dimensions in space, and challenging dancers to experience gravity and their own physicality in new ways.
In addition to directing FALL, Rebekah is currently a company member with Company Rose, the ballet program director at Ann Carroll School of Dance, has been a guest instructor for New Dialect’s Contemporary Cross-Training Series, and is a resident artist with abrasiveMedia.
