Cincinnati Ballet’s Infamous Love Songs, with live onstage music from the pop band Over the Rhine opens this weekend at the Aronoff Center for two evening and one matinee performance. This afternoon, I visited the Ballet studios to watch Devon Carney, one of four choreographers involved in this show, rehearse his cast. His piece “Thrive on Here’ uses tracks from three Over the Rhine albums: Trumpet’s Child, Drunkard’s Prayer and The Long Surrender. I had a wonderful time.
 
Devon hails from New Orleans, and I know he loves jazz. Maybe that’s why his choreography easily expressed for me the combination of church and sultry bar that seems at the root of Over the Rhine songs. Scattered through this post are some snaps I took of the dancers (wordpress is not allowing me to place them where I wish. BTW dancer credit for first snap is Selahattin Erkan who has a featured role to the tune “Don’t Wait for Tom”) and immediately below a serendipitous shot in the lobby of all the Infamous choreographers: Missy Lay Zimmer, Devon, Donald Byrd and Andrew Hubbard.
