Company Rose: "Tilling Green"
Auditorium ~ FREE; first come, first seated
From the sordid, the secret, and the sublime, Nashville-based Company Rose performs "Tilling Green," a dance work inspired by the art, artists, and attitudes of German Expressionism. "Tilling Green" is a meditation on the constant anxieties and fears that provoke transfiguration of living faces and pastoral spaces into frozen forms, a process that awakens a sense of horror and a search for the means by which subjects can till their authentic selves. "Tilling Green" is a deeply subjective and introspective work that is rooted in the inner essence of the self and nourished by the anonymity of the industrialized, alien, outer landscapes of early twentieth-century Europe. Company Rose transposes these themes found in Expressionist art, sourced in the human psyche, to the performative body through the power, poise, and simplicity of contemporary dance.
