7pm, aug 4 & 5, 2017 - A Bending Of Its Own Kind - SIDESHOW FRINGE FESTIVAL
Join us at Belmont's Black Box Theatre for an encore performance of
A Bending Of Its Own Kind, recently premiered to a sold out crowd at OZ Arts Nashville.
In a work that examines overcoming obstacles and personal limits, FALL 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 piece, Barger explores the psychology behind physical limitations including what it feels like to be trapped inside your body and trapped in other's perceptions, as well as touching on the everyday struggle of those living with chronic pain and chronic illness.
