Another highlight, cROSSed, is a playful number, and almost conflictingly so. Choreographer-dancer Carlyn Hudsonâs movements exude joy, as decades-old wartime footageâbombs dropping from planes, doctors operating on soldiersâis projected on the screen behind. But Hudson moves brightly across the stage, with energetic kicks, excited waves to the audience and eventually a loose, one-sided waltz. At one point she lounges casually on the side of the stage, lip-synching humorously in perfect time to the Inkspotsâ âWeâll Meet Again.â At another, she holds her arms out straight like an airplane, wiggling her head and twirling around the stage. Itâs hard not to grin throughout as her excitement mirrors that of a little kid, but youâre left slightly unsettled, thanks to all the violence and death of war playing behind.
