crushed is a dance/music/video performance in which control and chaos alternate as the ensemble takes on the notion of being blindsided and the physical impact of being caught off guard. Dancers sing and musicians dance in this feverishly physical dissection of cause and effect. Zeke Keeble’s electronic soundscape is the environment in which Amy O’Neal’s dance vocabulary of contemporary/hip-hop dance unfolds.
crushed has received funding and development support from On the Boards and Creative Capital. This project was made possible by the National Performance Network’s Performance Residency Program. Major contributors to the NPN include the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, Ford Foundation, The National Endowment for the Arts (a federal agency), Altria, and the Nathan Cummings Foundation. www.npnweb.org.
