Booms Day, which is appropriate for all ages, is directed by Chicago Dance Crash Artistic Director Jessica Deahr, written by Mark Hackman and choreographed by artists from across the country, including Deahr, Crash Rehearsal Director KC Bevis, Archangels Chicago Artistic Director Annie Franklin, hip hop and street dance specialist Jimmy Weeden and LA-based dancemaker James Gregg. Costume design is by Jeffrey Hancock with original lighting design by Erik S. Barry.

When events join her with one person, then another (and another), she has to make choices: friends or family, love or blood, peace or freedom. Add a greedy gang of marauders and a distant city beyond the wastelands, and the result is a world premiere combining comedy and suspense with a ton of stylistic, high-energy movement..."
