Amy O'Neal and Daniel Cruz

Amy O’Neal and Daniel Cruz come from different parts of the dance world. O’Neal’s avant garde credentials underlie her work at experimental venues like On the Boards, while Cruz’s hip-hop style is based in the heart of popular culture. Tonight, they’ll be sharing a stage for two separate performances. O’Neal, who runs the Locust ensemble with longtime musical collaborator Zeke Keeble, will premiere Crushed, a high-energy essay on cause and effect, and the distraction of being caught off guard. Cruz, with his group Cruz Control, is bringing Dance of the Dead to the mix, which explores spiritual uncertainty and the human response to death. Both artists are stepping beyond their original turf and finding some common ground. SANDRA KURTZ
