Booms Day
Its the end of days my oh my!
Chicago Dance Crashs flagship production of their 20th anniversary season pulls out ALL the bells and whistles to paint a colorful picture of life, strife and relationship goals after the end of the world. The companys hybrid style of hip hop & contemporary movement is supercharged for your post-pandemic pleasure with a considerable cast size, a radio-friendly soundtrack and a cohort of up-and-coming choreographers on the national scene. Of course, TEOTWAWKI was never meant to be easy! Both comedy and suspense are baked into the onstage adventure as its told through the eyes of an 8-year-old narrator whos memory and exact grasp of her surroundings leave quite a bit of room for flair.

Did we just become best friends!? Yep!
After a vague and expansive boom takes the fun out of everything  our young, female hero keeps it simple in the apocalypse by keeping her distance. No company, no contact, just her and a boombox. It isnt until events join her with one person then another and another that choices have to get made; friends or family, love or blood, peace or freedom. Sprinkle in a greedy gang of marauders, a distant city beyond the wastelands and a ton of stylistic, high-energy movement and now its complicated.

Choreographers include creative artist and Archangels Chicago artistic director Annie Franklin, hip hop & street dance specialist Jimmy Weeden and LA-based dancemaker James Gregg making his return to the windy city. Crash rehearsal director KC Bevis serves double duty as both co-choreographer and the lead, onstage role as our protagonist. Booms Day promises to look like nothing ever seen before at the Ruth Page Center for the Arts with both a heavy lift and healthy technical budget employed by costume designer Jeffrey Hancock and lighting designer Erik S. Barry.
This two-act, PG-rated production is created by writer Mark Hackman and director/lead choreographer and artistic director of Chicago Dance Crash Jessica Deahr.
