Ghosted explores the varied meanings of “ghost,” including the noun that implies soul or spirit, the verb that refers to gliding smoothly and effortlessly, and the recently popular term for abruptly ending a relationship without explanation or further communication. To be “ghosted” is to know what it means to reside in limbo, an end without boundaries, a disconnection without finality. Tony Perrin, the Nashville-based dancer, fashion/costume designer, graphic/print designer and force behind Lock and Key jewelry, brings together a broad swath of artistic endeavors for Ghosted. Incorporating movement, music, photography, shadow boxes, live performance and, naturally, jewelry, Perrin has curated a true one-of-a-kind multidisciplinary event. The original work starts with the dancers of contemporary dance collective New Dialect, photographed by Anna Haas while wearing Perrin’s jewelry. Music and movement are sketched out by choreographer David Flores and composer R. Aaron Walters during the shoot. Shadow boxes are then created from the photo series to house related jewelry, and the exploration culminates with a live dance performance and large-scale photography installation at the event. As dancers will be “ghosted” out of the photos, a new space for discovery emerges.
