This blissfully bonkers whatzit from unclassifiable dance-comedy trio Cocoon Central Dance Team is part psychotropic performance art spectacle, part absurdist sketch show. The three Bing Bongs—Tallie Medel, Sunita Mani & Eleanore Pienta—lounge about, fight beachballs, and periodically break into wondrously strange dance routines, with outer space interludes, a serious consideration of doctor boners, and a 90s-style girl group meltdown along the way. It all plays like a live action cartoon piped in from a cotton-candy-colored alternate universe. (Nellie Killian)

Director: Catherine Fordham Run Time: 22 min. Format: Digital
Starring: Monica West, Myra Lucretia Taylor, Michelle Ang, Bhavesh Patel, Liam Vincent
