7pm, JUNE 15, 2017 - A Bending Of Its Own Kind - OZ Arts Nashville
FALL presents a new work for OZ Arts Nashville that examines the overcoming of obstacles and personal limits. Founder and artistic director, Rebekah Hampton Barger, investigates her own personal struggle with severe scoliosis through a physical performance that blends classical and contemporary dance with a mix of aerial fabric and an invented apparatus. In this work, Barger explores the psychology behind physical limitations in a broad range of gravity-challenging movement.
Mary Mooney, Nashville-based visual artist and self-taught jewelry designer, will paint a number of large, museum-grade acrylic “canvases” in, around and throughout the performance— live—as a study of the movement created by FALL’s dancers. Mooney’s artworks will serve as a permanent record to this ephemeral moment, and the body of works created will be on display in OZ’s visual art gallery in the months following the live event.
