Experience Chicago Dance Crash – Named The Most Inventive Show of 2017 in the U.S. by Dance Magazine

Chicago Dance Crash Featuring the world premiere of “Al Nafs” by Amirah Sackett
Wednesday, November 7, 2018 - 11:29am

Founded in 2002 and led by artistic director Jessica Deahr, Chicago Dance Crash has emerged as a critical staple of the local and national dance scene, engaging audiences and broadening the exposure of hip hop/contemporary dance.

With a unique union of styles both classic and contemporary, including ballet, capoeira, breakdance, and acrobatics, Crash burst onto the scene in its first season with the new and innovative movement play concept and has grown to receive critical acclaim throughout its 16 years…recently having been awarded “The Most Inventive Show of 2017” in the United States acknowledgment by Dance Magazine.

This family-appropriate dance concert will see a combination of some of Crash’s most crowd-pleasing repertory works along with some new pieces having just premiered in the past year.

The works will range from light and humorous to intense and socially minded; though all displaying the organization’s branded aesthetic of “concert format hip hop and breaking.”

The night will be highlighted by the world premiere of “Al Nafs,” a brand new, long-form dance piece created by Muslim hip-hop choreographer Amirah Sackett.

"If John Steinbeck earned a Nobel Prize in Literature shortly after publishing Travels with Charley, then Theresa should start planning a trip to Oslo, Norway, because Two Lane Gems is every bit the book Travels with Charley was. And then some." ~Amazon review
