More About the Show
The rich history of Nashville – events which happened in our own backyard – has many untold stories. Why are some tales told, but not others? Who decides what becomes part of the common mythology? What injustices have passed by, unnoticed by most?
Inspired by America’s deadliest train crash which occurred in 1918 at Dutchman’s Curve in the Richland Creek area of Nashville, HAUNTED is a Southern Gothic event crafted to respond to the story of Dutchman’s Curve and the venue itself. Audiences will be immersed in a mysterious world filled with innovative dance performances, intimate interactions with characters, and secret rooms, all knit together with a spine-tingling soundscape.
1211 4th Ave S, Nashville, TN 37203
Follow our characters’ narratives, or make your own way – you aren’t likely to have the same experience at HAUNTED as anyone else. HAUNTED is presented in a landscape of art installations which dig deeper into the themes brought up by the story of Dutchman’s Curve: what it means to be haunted by the past, the importance of remembering the dead, and the questions raised by our history which are still being explored today. HAUNTED is the prototype of a new method of creative collaboration in Nashville. Performances will be October 20-22 at Track One in Wedgewood-Houston.
HAUNTED will reincarnate silenced ghosts from Nashville’s past and give them the voice they were denied. The only question is: how well have you buried your ghosts?
