"Crash Points 3" is based on "Crash Points," a performance created by Peter Dudar during his partnership with dancer/choreographer Lily Eng. As Missing Associates, they were part of the experimental dance scene in art galleries during the 1970s and 1980s.
"Crash Points" was essentially a non-competitive track and field event in which the perimeter of a gallery was used as a running track. Hurdles coming down ("crash points") triggered interactions between the performers.
"Crash Points 3" uses footage from two earlier "Crash Points" films-digitized and extensively re-edited. With contemporary video techniques, Dudar both re-interprets and enhances the performance.
