Blue Moves Modern Dance Company is proud to present, with the support of our patrons, Muse: Inspired by Nashville Artists, a night of original dance and music inspired by and infused with the visions of local fine artists and their works.

This Nashville-based multi-media artistic collaboration uses images of the natural world as a metaphor for the resilience of the human spirit. It plays on themes of creativity and depression, balance and imbalance, and the interconnectedness of our community.

The main event will be staged in the historic Looby Theater on Saturday, March 11th 2017, featuring three live dances, a short film, and live music. One week prior, on Saturday, March 4th, three of the visual artists whose work inspired the dances will be featured at abrasiveMedia as part of the city-wide First Saturday Art Crawl. The abrasiveMedia Art Crawl event will also feature live excerpts from the dances, music, and prose from the performance.

The four dance works of art in Muse are:
