Falling Up

September 2 @ 12:30 pm

A celebration of play, possibility, and the tenderness of being human. Six dance artists displace gravity to co-create new worlds with fantastical possibilities. Step into Falling Up and immerse yourself in the imaginative effort of turning the world anew, again and again and again.


In Falling Up, creators / performers Amalia Colón-Nava, Chloe Marie, Harlee Trautman, Katherine Kiefer Stark, Marcie Mamura, and Meredith Stapleton vision alternate realities and arrive at mutual agreements for existing inside of them. They disorient and reorient themselves and the audience through a unique and shiftable set, costume changes and projection.


Watch them bound into the air, float and crash off a wall that has become the floor. Witness worlds melt as tender embraces and the weighted struggle of transposing gravity loop into joyful giggles of 6 bodies intertwined sinking up a wall.


These whimsical, beautiful, and bizarre illusions invite performers and audience alike to adjust what is possible and collectively imagine each new reality as it emerges.


Can we hold a different reality together?


Can we say ‘yes’ to impossible ideas and unknowable outcomes?


Can we take the time to try and fail and try and fail and try and fail?


Can the effort of change be as beautiful and joyful as it is challenging and overwhelming?


This work emerged through our practice of collective imagination – creating new realities that we can all inhabit, that offer each of us belonging, moving through discomfort, making mistakes, embracing effort.


The Falling Up Zine offers a deeper dive into our practice and the layers underneath the performance – available for purchase at thenakedstark.com.
