Chicago Dance Crash has always occupied a distinctive space between flashy squad and classically trained ensemble. The dancers are versatile, agile, but they come at you with the attitude of a hip-hop crew. That attitude often leads to dark places. For Evil & Good, the company's latest world premiere, the scenario is pretty much cut and dried from the start: nine scenes pit opposing forces against one another—like a series of old-fashioned dance-offs with an emphasis on bright spotlights, lithe solos, and a cast of nebulous characters. Much of it feels like entertainment for its own sake, akin to what you might see on an episode of So You Think You Can Dance. The shtick can get tedious, but there's hardly a moment where you won't appreciate the skill on display. Cat Deeley would approve. —Matt de la Peña
