With their stunts and vigorous impulses, the b-boys and b-girls seem invincible. But are they as all-powerful when the knees start to give way and the physicality wanes? Choreographer Crazy Smooth sheds light on the taboo of the aging body by inviting nine formidable breakdancers aged 24 to 58 to take the stage, body and soul.
Crazy Smooth draws on the feverish fluidity associated with actual breakdancing competitions and pushes the boundaries of street dance to show the other side of the body, its maturity and its limits. Moving from smooth group formations to complex, thrumming duets and solos, the performers grip and support each other, an embodiment of supportive community. Punctuated by documentary fragments, life stories and spoken word, "In My Body" sheds light on how transmission works, from the elders who keep memory alive to the churn of youth. "B-boy for life!"
