M.A.D.D. Rhythms - Beyond The Shuffle

Beyond a Shuffle

“The B.S. Shuffle” choreographed by Tristan Bruns, featuring “Boogie Stop Shuffle” by Charles Mingus from the album "Ah Um"(1959).

Performers include: Bril Barrett, Tristan Bruns, Andrew Carr, Megan Davis,Starinah “Star” Dixon, Alexandrya Fryson, Izaiah Harris, Sterling Harris, Caleb Jackson, Donnetta Jackson, Keyana Latimer, Case Prime, KJ Sheldon, and William Wims.

"Mingus 'Ah Um' is the first record I ever bought, even before I owned a record player", said choreographer Tristan Buns, " and that bouncing bass line and dissonant harmonies just make you itch to move around." In the same way that Mingus challenged the music, M.A.D.D. Rhythms would like to now challenge the dance.

The video production team:
Adam Salinas (director/editor); Alexander Lakin (director of photography);  Gianna Aquilina (1st assistant camera); Chris O'Malley (gaffer) and Tristan Bruns (Sound Editor).
