3. Arch 8’s Tetris
Feb 18th, 1pm
Tennessee Performing Arts Center, 505 Deaderick St, Nashville 37219

Experience two of Arch 8’s most physically awe-inspiring works – “No Man Is an Island” and “Tetris” – featuring a gravity-defying combination of acrobatics, extreme physicality, and movement. How does it all fit together? First up is “No Man Is an Island,” which pushes the limits of possibility as one person climbs, stretches, and shifts his weight atop another without touching the ground. Then it’s “Tetris,” inspired by the addictive puzzle game and the twists and turns of a Rubik’s Cube, that has performers fitting, merging, stacking, and combining in various feats. If you’ve ever been a kid who can’t sit still – who wants to hurdle over furniture and scale the walls – “Tetris” is for you. It is about fitting into a group, but also staying true to yourself.
