    Whether Body Collider Dance is mocking or celebrating fashion in Bare Knuckle High Fashion is not always clear, but "hot mess" may be the gist.

    Actors Benjamin Thys and Brenna Palughi, as fashion design duo, or designer and PR agent/muse/assistant, begin at odds with each other, with Thys shooting down or saying the opposite of anything Palughi says to describe the aesthetic and inspiration for the clothes.

    Models troop across stage from time to time, and video clips hit the back wall even more frequently, while silent protagonists Stine Moen, Hooba and Sara Greenfield dance in the high-speed style they prefer as Body Collider Dance, with elements of b-boy, contact and floor-slamming.

    The videos, set on an industrial/silver rooftop or in darkness, are intriguing, humorous and loosely conceived. Body Collider, and possibly Ane Iselin Brogeland, who shares dance duties onstage, vamp and play with fashion show clichés in mock runway walks. Makeup transformations, good and "bad", fill out the rest of the videos. As in the piece overall, a progression implies growing chaos, or randomness, as, for example, when Hooba wheels out a piano and plays a bit of sparse but original music near the end.

    It's equally easy to read too much or nothing in the goings-onstage; the aim could be to show soul-sucking devolution or self-absorbed silliness. Like a fashion show, though, a lot of work went into the evening, and it is a bit of a spectacle.
