Second-hand Dances for the Crude, Crude City¬†is inspired by Chi Pig, the lead vocalist of Edmonton’s greatest punk band ever, SNFU. These dances explore what it means to be punk or alternative in today’s world, when the meaning behind those terms has become commodified, fashionable, and neutered of political impact. Can art still cause revolution?

In this work choreographer and dancer Gerry Morita (MZD Artistic Director) explores the frustration, violence and catharsis of the early punk scene and the inevitable decline of that energy into a mall-scape dreamland.
