Here in Nashville, the first taste of spring delighted us a week or so ago (which has now given away to snow and ice). But, for a brief moment, we were reminded that this season is always so exciting, because it means newness is coming. New flowers, new life. This week I have found myself daydreaming of all things new: new beginnings, new adventures, new people doing new things. Brave new things.
Last Thursday, our friends at OZ opened their doors for the first performance in their series of Brave New Art. OZ is Nashville’s new destination for innovative, contemporary art. We can’t wait for more.
From the moment the first guests arrived until the final few shut down the bar, the halls were buzzing with excitement and anticipation. Wayne McGregor | Random Dance gave a powerful, memorable performance for the sold-out crowd of over 500. The dancers were mesmerizing. Complete with a three-dimensional, computerized light display backdrop, no detail was overlooked. FAR, the 60-minute piece, was stunning.
To welcome the cast and crew to Nashville, Batch provided custom boxes of local goods that awaited them at the hotel. The boxes were filled with local treats meant to make being on the road feel more like home. We hope that our little gesture was as welcome a treat to these talented artists as their performance was to our city.
We also had a chance to welcome those attending the show and made available for purchase local marshmallows and chocolates. And this weekend, we'll have some delicious popcorn to share. Think of us like your super-local concession stand.
Of course, if you're interested in having Batch curate welcome gifts, audience treats, or anything else for your big event, drop us a line. We're happy to do what we can to make you and your event look (and taste) great!
