HIT is inspired by the exploration of impact that came directly from BLM’s ongoing collaboration with biomedical engineer David Odde on the physically violent interior of the cell. The work takes this technique of impact and applies it to a scathing examination of human relationships in which the prohibition against violent physicality is removed. Original soundscape by Greg Brosofske. HIT was underwritten the McKnight Artist Fellowship for Choreographers Program and the American Composers Forum’s Live Music for Dance Minnesota program in partnership with New Music USA, with matching funds provided by the McKnight Foundation. HIT premiered in March 2011 at The Dance Center of Columbia College of Chicago.
