Nashville Ballet is presenting Attitude February 15 through 17, three works from some of the country’s most cutting-edge choreographers. Attitude includes Ploughing the Dark from Sarah Slipper, The Whistling fromDominic Walsh, and a brand-new, yet-to-be-named world premiere from Gina Patterson, set to live music from singer-songwriter Matthew Perryman Jones with visual art produced on stage by Emily Leonard.
Leonard, who loves dance and moves a lot while she works, explained, “Matthew, Gina, and I have spoken about this performance being a bit of an exploration into the idea of duende, which is an elusive term applied to the authenticity of expression in a work of art, particularly of music and dance.”
Leonard will create a 7 ½’ x 22 ½’ painting during the course of the three performances.
Tickets to Attitude can be purchased in person at the TPAC box office in downtown Nashville or online at www.nashvilleballet.com.
