New Dialect will premiere Turns to Blue, an original creation by Rosemarie Mientka at the Frist Family Festival Day on November 16th.  The dance, which will be performed by our company members, is inspired by the work of German abstract painter Wassily Kandinsky and the music that, in turn, inspired him.

We will perform the piece twice that afternoon. At 3:15pm and again at 5pm.

Emma Morrison and Emily Rhyne will also be teaching two children's movement workshops at 2pm and 4pm. They'll each last about twenty minutes.

During the festival everyone will have the opportunity to tour the Frist's exhibition of Kandinsky: A Retrospective, a gathering of the artist's work on loan from the Collection Centre Pompidou, in Paris.

Other exhibits on display will be: Helen Pashgian: Light Invisible and Sanctity Pictured: The Art of the Dominican and Franciscan Orders in Renaissance Italy.

The Fesitval will also feature live music and they're be tables set up for any one who wants to try their hand at making a work of art inspired by Kandinsky or anything else.

The Festival is FREE and will run from 1:00 - 5pm.
