Nashville Ballet's Emergence

June 1-3, 2018

Nashville Ballet

Music Curated in Creative Collaboration with The Bluebird Cafe


Nashville Ballet lifts the curtain on the creative process with its wildly popular Emergence series, inviting the public into its studio to experience a piece of art only weeks in the making. See what happens when up-and-coming choreographers are free to create with only a blank notebook in hand and no rules to follow—other than embracing their creative instincts. This season’s edition will feature a musical collaboration with The Bluebird Cafe, recreating the intimacy of the world-renowned listening room at Nashville Ballet. The Bluebird Cafe celebrates its 35th anniversary this year, and Emergence serves as the finale event of its yearlong celebration.

“All that is required from artists and audience members alike is an unbridled sense of adventure.” – John Pitcher, Nashville Scene (2015)
