An interview with choreographer Ryan Heffington #MusicMonday

NewImage

From NPR‘s Eric Ducker:

What was your favorite music-related memory or experience of 2014?

There have been so many! One of them for sure was sitting at the Brite Spot after the MTV VMAs and getting a text from Sia telling me congrats. They announced Best Choreography via Twitter (glamorous) and she’s how I found out.

What were some of the favorite shows or performances you went to?

Seeing FKA twigs at the Regent recently solidified my appreciation for her. Blood Orange at Coachella was incredible, and performing there [during the first week] with Arcade Fire was epic.

You were on stage with them?

We performed on this 10×10 raised platform in the middle of the audience in daisy dukes, flannels and heels for “We Exist.” You can see it on the back screen in the video.

I’ve seen the video, but wasn’t there, so I thought that was pre-filmed footage from the video shoot.

No. It was live! And so thrilling. It felt so important.

Check out the full interview and the video below!


We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
