choreo by mike song of kaba modern and anthony lee of cadc (chinese assoc dance crew).
VERY weird trailer (courtesy AAM)
it’s awesome that ppl from kaba and quest are in the movie. not so sure about the plot tho. do all dancers in the future need to be augmented w/ superpowers and inherit the gene for blue eyes? really?
but regardless, this could be a pretty big deal. i mean, sure it might be reminicent of a bboy exploitation film from the 80s, but it’s got nationally recognized asians as a very prominent part of the cast and talent. and they aren’t all doing martial arts! and they aren’t gangsters! and they aren’t geeks/nerds! and they speak english! has hollywood lost it’s freakin mind?
it’s apparently billed as a hip-hop westside story. so i’m wondering… exactly how is the riff/mercutio character gonna get killed? i mean is the bernardo/tybalt character gonna dance him to death? lol.
