It’s hard to think about Impressionist paintings without imagining Degas’ dancers. With every tilt and fold of their bodies, his lithe ballerinas suggest movement. In fact, the trademark of the Impressionist brush — staccato flicks of light and color — evoke motion, dynamism and the fleet passage of time. To deepen the experience of The Birth of Impressionism, The Frist hosts Dance by Company Rose: Bittersweet Souvenirs. The troupe will not perform a famous 19th century ballet; a contemporary team of dancers, Company Rose will channel the movement, sensations and tensions of the Impressionist style in a thoroughly modern performance. Inspired by the past, but not enslaved to it, this show mixes tradition and innovation. Isn’t that what art is all about?
