Alessandra Marconi with Bboy Crazy Smooth & Simon Mendoza
This offering is a 2020 time-capsule: a call to go within. Rooted in self-love and made to inspire one’s inner-creator. It’s an homage to a dance that has profoundly impacted my life. To the Hustle community of NYC, whose members exude joy in the expression of this dance and pass it forward to people including me and my partner, Crazy Smooth. To the pandemic and the revolution, that reminds us of mortality and silence and humility. Original composition by Filipino-Canadian, Simon Mendoza (LA). Bboy Crazy Smooth, dancer, and vocals. Direction, text, vocals by me. Shot on iPhone.
