Blue Moves Dance Company 20th Anniversary at Avenue 9 

Kind of Blue

Kind of Blue
Modern dance wasn’t exactly an overstocked commodity in Middle Tennessee when MTSU students Amanda Cantrell Roche, Lee Anne (Allen) Carmack and Don Sullivan founded this ensemble in 1989. We don’t know which is more remarkable: that the group has remained true to its democratic ideals without erupting in artistic schism — Blue Moves prides itself on not having a single group leader — or that it’s simply managed to survive two of the roughest decades for arts groups in my lifetime. Either way, they’ve made a point of using unexpected music and unusual settings, such as their memorable performance at the Artrageous after-party one year on the Sommet Center’s two-story escalator. The group’s 20th anniversary tour culminates in a gala featuring live dance and theater, vintage video, art installations, appetizers, a cash bar and the awarding of the Blue Moves Legacy honor. Selections include “Afloat,” “Timeless” and “Ride,” incorporating music by Nick Lowe, Jimmy Scott, Ennio Morricone, St. German and Nina Simone. Tickets are $15.
Sat., March 13, 7:30 p.m., 2010
