A Southern Gothic, immersive exploration inspired by the Dutchman’s Curve train wreck of 1918
Who are the ghosts who haunt our city, insisting their stories be told? Inspired by the nation’s deadliest passenger train crash at Dutchman’s Curve in Richland Creek, HAUNTED is a Southern Gothic site-responsive collaboration which will echo with voices once silenced by prejudice and injustice, voices buried in Nashville’s nearly-forgotten history.
Produced and directed by Jessika Malone (Actors Bridge Associate Artistic Director) and featuring contributions from Nashville’s experimental performance leaders Tony Youngblood (Modular Art Pods @ Oz Arts), Audra Almond-Harvey (abrasiveMedia), Rebekah Hampton Barger (FALL), and Kara McLeland (Musicologist), this world-premiere will feature original music, dance, and immersive art installations with environment design by Mitch Massaro (1220 Exhibits / Actors Bridge Technical Director) and contributions from Nashville’s premiere visual and performing artists.
HAUNTED will reincarnate silenced ghosts from Nashville’s past and give them the voice they were denied. The only question is: how well have you buried your ghosts?
