Malashock/RAW is a high-energy, fearlessly physical collection of three works by Malashock Dance. John Malashock revealed his newest work in the world premiere of Man Up!, challenging and exploring gender stereotypes. Michael Mizerany, Associate Artistic Director of Malashock Dance, also unveiled a world premiere with his new piece Bad Company, which revels in distain and judgement. Bradley Michaud, Artistic Director of Method Contemporary Dance in Los Angeles, reset his award winning piece This is Not An Exit.
Hosted by Sushi Performance & Visual Art, the design embraced the "found space" and urban nature of the venue while maintaining the hallmarks of more traditional dance lighting: carving bodies out of space using side and back light.
