In My Body

Crazy Smooth

Choreographer Crazy Smooth brings together 9 formidable street dancers aged from 24 to 58 in a manifesto of self-transcendence.

Between stunts and vigorous impulses, b-boys and b-girls seem invincible. But what happens to their omnipotence when knees buckle and physical forces shift? Choreographer Crazy Smooth sheds light on the taboo of the aging body by inviting 9 formidable street dancers aged from 24 to 58 to occupy the stage with body and soul.

In the kind of energetic magma we associate with authentic breaking competitions, Crazy Smooth shakes up the lines of street dance to show the other side of our body: its maturity and its limits. Moving from fluid group constructions to vibrantly complex duets and solos, the performers grab hold of each other and help one another out as a microcosm of a supportive community. Punctuated by documentary fragments, life stories and spoken word, In My Body makes transmission visible, from the elders guardians of memory to the bubbling youth. B-boy for life.
