Fast/Forward: Nashville Artists Look To Our Future
In this lively evening of filmed performances, Nashville-based dancers, poets, musicians, and theatre-makers reflect on the revelations, revolutions, and resiliency of the day.
The event features short-form works from 8 different projects, many from OZ past and present, that explore personal vulnerability, civic responsibility, and the sheer madness of the unexpected. Together, these inspiring artists share a vision of the world we hope to build together and spark the hope that will fuel us into the future.
Performances and artists include:
Poet Ciona Rouse as emcee
A moving performance of the title song from the upcoming Steal Away, conceived and composed by Dave Ragland with choreography from Shabaz Ujima
A riveting, self-choreographed solo performance by dancer Becca Hoback
Special excerpts of the This Holding performance film, introduced by visual artist Jana Harper and choreographer Rebecca Steinberg
A powerful spoken word performance by local poets Cameron Mitchell and Jems Destine
A stripped-down, acoustic selection from ghoulish rockers Fable Cry
An emotionally stirring multimedia-music presentation by Gardening, Not Architecture
An original solo dance piece created by dancer Joi Ware
