Chicago Dance Crash's new normal

Now that everybody's settled down from Election Day (well, except maybe Karl Rove), we can get back to what really matters. The arts! This weekend Chicago Dance Crash opens their latest show, something entirely unique from their usual off-the-wall performances--a repertory concert.

Crazy, right? From the innovative company that brought you "Gotham City," "Busta Keaton" and "Immediate Gratification," their new two-weekend engagement is simple in form, but I don't doubt it will still have that wow factor that makes Crash unique.

In honor of their 10th anniversary, Crash called on an elite set of choreographers to develop repertory fit for the company's genre-mixing style. Six of the seven works in the show are world premieres, and will feature choreography from Jon Lehrer (LehrerDance), Stephanie Martinez (formerly of River North Dance Chicago), Nick Pupillo (Visceral Dance Center), Richard Ashworth (Chicago Tap Theatre), Crash's Lyndsey Rhoads and Dan Gibson, and a collaborative work from Crash's Jessica Deahr and Mark Hackman.

The show opens this weekend at Ruth Page Center for the Arts. For tickets and information go to
