The shtick here is that each of the crew of hip-hop dancers is totally covered with clothes and serene blank masks, so issues of race, gender, and physical perfection are left at the door. It’s interesting and sporadically amusing as they use their bodies to communicate everything from lust to disgust, but the real benefit is that it allows the group to function as a single unit; almost like a multicell organism, only one that pops and locks. Their show’s latest incarnation, in a new home at MGM Grand, is set on a smaller stage, which may seem confining for their acrobatic dance style, but the addition of video mapping and intricate lighting effects makes the stage as big a part of the show as the dancers. Shows are Thursday through Monday, 7 and 9:30pm.
