"Alloy" is the first of three singles to be released off of Chicharra's forthcoming album, Let's Paint This Town in Craters," (out October 2017) that together illustrate the album's journey from apocalypse to rebirth. The first of the trilogy, "Alloy," opens the struggle with an aerial acrobatics piece inspired by Kurt Vonnegut's story "Harrison Bergeron," which tells of a dystopian future in which dancers are made to wear weights so they can't achieve their full potential. Co-produced by AirDance New Mexico and Chicharra's own Monica Demarco and filmed and edited by Chris Walsh, "Alloy" features aerial acrobatics performed and choreographed by Christina Cavaleri who wears a heavy, welding masking during the piece.
