Join the US premiere of Crack Nerve Boogie Swerve, a dance and music performance showcasing the strength and fragility of the body.

Alexis Blake presents a work that takes up glass and breaking as metaphors for the fragility and strength of the individual and collective body. Both an installation and a performance, the work starts with sheets of glass nestled in moveable steel bases. The performers, who are a percussionist, two sound artists and four dancers coming from different dance genres such as breakdance, hip hop, contemporary, ballet, West African, and tap, activate the glass to explore transparency, resistance, resonance and breaking—breaking free from constraints and liberating oneself from the confinement of oppression.

This performance takes place in a covered passage and happens rain or shine.
