Nashville-based Company Rose, in partnership with the Middle Tennessee State University Dance Program and the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, is pleased to present That You Have, a contemporary dance performance that explores themes and images conjured up by the exhibition Phantom Bodies: The Human Aura in Art. Marsha Barsky’s original choreography will be performed by members of Company Rose, who will be joined for the occasion by students from an MTSU Special Topics course in Dance. That You Have responds directly to works in the Frist Center exhibit, while exploring related areas that overlap with contemporary dance, in which dancers create tableaux of work that are rooted in time and space, materiality and the ephemerality of passing time. Images evoked by light, shadow, presence, and absence appear to the audience like glimpses of lives lived, only to fade into the obscurity of memory and fantasy.
From the exhibition to the performance space, audience members will experience how ideas of representation, memory, and consciousness can be interwoven into choreographic structures and movement motifs, finding in their own experience of the performance feelings of empathy, remembrance, and compassion. This work is sponsored in part by the MTSU Faculty Research and Creativity Activity Award, presented to Marsha Barsky in 2015.
