Alright, here it is, the week of the festival. Erin, Julianne, and I (Hayley) had our first light hanging experience yesterday. Thank you to Mitch, Jessika, Michael, and Ricardo for defining so many new terms for us. We have a few more rehearsals and tech for some of the bigger acts. Then, it all begins on Thursday with the Kick-Off Party (Do you have your VIP pass yet?). There are so many great acts this weekend and I wanted to tell you about some of them. Make sure to keep reading this week. I’ll be posting media and information on all of the exciting performances.
I’m going to start out with the amazing aerial dancers that will be performing twice. Once as featured dancers in the encore performance of Serendipity 3, which was part of the Warhol Live Exhibit at the Frist. This event will happen at 8:15pm on Friday in the Black Box. Then, on Saturday, they will premiering a new piece with a new aerial dance apparatus. You really don’t want to miss either of these performances. I know that I can’t wait to see these.
FALL is a dance company that specializes in aerial dance, site specific work, and more traditional dance concerts. Their pieces are absolutely phenomenal and we are so excited to have them part the weekend’s events. Check out their website for some videos and more info about them and their art.
