Between Me and Blue is a contemporary dance work inspired by the color blue. Blue is not only a primary color, but it also encompasses many social connotations such as the Blues music, feeling blue, blue uniforms, etc. Between Me and Blue meditates on the importance of subjective experience in shaping seemingly self evident realities such as the experience of the color blue.
