an original music-video for CHIRPY

Created and Directed by David Ferguson

In the summer of 2017, Suddenly Dance Theatre’s Artistic co-Directors David Ferguson and Miles Lowry were introduced to the Irish singer-songwriter/producer Chirpy by musician John McGlynn in Dublin, Ireland. Over the course of the evening which included a late night Sunday Night Session at the Stag's Head Pub, a creative opportunity emerged: Chirpy was about to release her debut album and Ferguson/Lowry were about to work with the dynamic Dab Dance Project from South Korea in the creation of the film 'We Are Diamonds' in Victoria, BC. Director David Ferguson saw a way of making a music video for 'Another Version' at the same time as making 'We Are Diamonds'. Playing off the song's themes of duality and self-projection, the video features JOOHA LEE with JUNG AH CHUNG (with unseen imagery from our 2014 outdoor dance-video installation OPHELIA). 


Rebecca Shannon - better known as CHIRPY - is an Irish singer-songwriter and producer from Dublin, Ireland. She began singing with the Irish choral ensemble Anúna upon finishing school at the age of 18. She toured most of the world with the group singing in the choral line-up and featuring as a soloist. She self-released a 6 track demo EP in June 2017 called 'Real Life' which shot straight to the number 1 position on the Irish iTunes album download charts. Her debut album was released in 2018.
