It's said that the bravest thing a dancer can do is grow old – for a b-boy or b-girl, the experience is approaching heroic. In keeping with hip-hop culture, b-boys and b-girls present a façade of confidence and invincibility as they engage in battles to prove their value and establish their dominance. The resulting vocabulary is one of the most physically demanding and visually impressive of the dance genres and leaves no room for the expression of vulnerability. For In My Body, dancer, choreographer Crazy Smooth brings together an intergenerational group of dancers and an international creative team for an intensely athletic investigation of the evolution of self and the effects of aging on street dancers.
