Staccato in Blue
Staccato in Blue, choreographed by Arye Shannon-Carmichael
Premiered in December 2017; Emerge
“The inspiration for Staccato in Blue came from the music itself. I originally choreographed the piece to Work Song, by Hozier. The lyrics and rhythmic beat invoked certain movements that I found very interesting. However, not having the copyrights to this song, I've embarked on a unique project to create new music for this piece of choreography.
Eric Raby, a local musician, composer, and producer, shared his talents and created a new musical composition for Staccato in Blue. Its been a fun experience working with an artist to create music that still aligns with my original choreographic idea.”
