FALL is a contemporary dance company using all the instruments at our disposal to create art that both inspires and entertains. By incorporating aerial dance (hanging from the ceiling), site specific work (climbing on things not typically climbed on), more traditional dance elements (where we usually, though not always, have at least one foot on the ground), and collaborations with other artists and genres, FALL moves in all dimensions of space to make innovative, exciting and unexpected art.

FALL was founded in 2010. We began as a small group of performers doing site-specific work, collaborative performances, and traditional theatrical concerts. The vision of FALL’s founder, Rebekah Hampton Barger, was to utilize the vocabulary of aerial arts (which are traditionally circus arts) to expand the bounds of contemporary dance.

In 2013, Rebekah led FALL into a year of exploratory work in order to develop a strategy for the future of the company. FALL looks forward to a future of creating unique site-specific experiences in the city of Nashville, while continuing to collaborate with artists of all genres.
