effing-werkit-bebe highlights the more explicitly comedic and commercially-driven aspects of Caroline’s choreography. The piece highlights elements of modern, ballet, and hip-hop with seriousness and technical brava. However, occasionally each style’s amusing tendencies find their way in through a not so carefully-packaged, sarcastic performance. effing-werkit-bebe follows a music video structure and includes a riveting ‘dance break’ where all of the dancers perform a sequence of popping heels, “tutting” hand movements, knee bounces, and hip thrusts.
