“This year, we want our audiences to feel connected to each performance in a way that is rarely offered by dance companies in San Diego,” says founder and artistic director, John Malashock of Malashock Dance. “We have big plans for big impact this year and look to create deeper connections to our community, making each performance worthwhile, personal and, meaningful.”

“Signatures” will blur lines with the audience sharing the studio space with the dancers. Patrons who have seen Malashock’s large-scale productions will appreciate this intimacy, and a new generation of patrons will find the setting thrilling, sexy, and thought-provoking.

The pieces to be performed are the following:
• Silver & Gold: One of Malashock’s most popular works. A duet portraying two distinct sides of a relationship.
• Dreams & Prayers: An intensely physical, dramatic and spiritual piece, which is emblematic of Malashock’s use of music in his choreography.
• Incoming: World premiere. This quirky and entertaining work for eight dancers is about finding moments of tenderness in the midst of an aggressive atmosphere.
• Times Unremembered: World premiere. A highly dramatic quartet, exploring childhood memories to a beautiful and haunting score by Sarah Kirkland Snider.

“Malashock Signatures” is another way to bridge accessibility and inclusion, so audience members feel deeply connected to the choreography and the dancers as they experience the physicality and emotions of the dance pieces from only a few feet away.
