Live Streaming of Nick Cave: Feat. Nashville
Please note, this event has expired.
Both performances of Nick Cave: Feat. Nashville at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center are sold out. The next best thing? Come watch a live stream of either the matinee or evening performance in the Frist Center auditorium, fristcenter.org, or on the Facebook page.
The free large-scale performances will include three customized compositions (“Blanket Statement,” “Heard,” and “Up Right”) that combine a variety of genres, from music and dance to spoken word, with Cave’s signature soundsuits as part of the visual extravaganza. An explosion of color, sound, and energy, Cave’s art often defies traditional definitions and is unforgettable once it has been encountered.
In addition to creating elaborate and thought-provoking objects for presentation in galleries and museums, as in the exhibition Nick Cave: Feat., Cave wants his role as a messenger to engage a broader audience. The titles of the exhibition and the performances, with their abbreviation of the word “feature,” invoke the larger purpose behind Cave’s involvement with the Frist Center: to feature the people and issues of Nashville by way of artistic performance. The artist’s commitment to “hiring the community” means that Cave is collaborating with local preprofessional and professional choreographers, dancers, musicians, students, and leaders to produce Nick Cave: Feat. Nashville. Together, the artist, the cast, the crew, and the audience will explore themes of identity, social justice, and the power of art to transform our world, doing so from multiple vantage points.
