Tickets on sale Friday, 5/13.
A Bending Of Its Own Kind 2.0 is an aerial and contemporary ballet in which choreographer, Rebekah Hampton Barger (founder and artistic director of FALL), examines her experience with severe scoliosis and chronic pain, as well as that of others who live with a variety of chronic conditions.
Commissioned by OZ Arts Nashville, A Bending Of Its Own Kind originally premiered in 2017 to an audience with standing room only. With funding from Metro Arts and a partnership with the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, a new iteration of the piece will be presented in June – Scoliosis Awareness Month – to their medical staff, as well as to the general public, with the goal of using dance and performance art as a communication tool between chronic pain patients and their healthcare providers.
Each performance will be followed by a moderated feedback session and discussion between the choreographer, performers, and the audience.
