The Lowdown

The Lowdown is all about the mash-up—a dance party masquerading as a dance performance, with multiple styles recombined under new identities. On stage, choreographer Amy O’Neal first brings her signature combination of hip-hop and modern dance to a new work called Again, No Excuses, performed by her AmyO/tinyrage ensemble. Also on the bill: the Soulshifters (featuring members of the renowned Circle of Fire breakdance crew) and The Can Can Castaways, who blend the wink and nod of burlesque with contemporary dance forms. Altogether, the evening is a big mix of genres and influences. It concludes in the lobby with a dance party featuring DJs WD4D and PotatoFinger, cash bar, and eats from Tom Douglas. SANDRA KURTZ
