ABOUT THE WORK
Dispersal was created by choreographer Christopher Stuart for our 2020 winter series, Innovative Works: Beyond the Mint. For this series, Stuart and two other choreographers were tasked with creating new works inspired by the Mint Museum exhibit, Immersed in Light: Studio Drift at the Mint. The gorgeous score “Il Nodo” was composed for this work by sought-after Nashville musician Cristina Spinei.
When asked about Dispersal, Stuart cites being “particularly struck by Studio Drift’s artwork involving dandelion seeds” (pictured below). In this work, he uses dandelions as a metaphor for humans — “we adapt to our surroundings; we show resilience.” How perfectly suited to this time!
