For RAWdance’s first season after expanding to two coasts, the company’s three Artistic Directors unite to premiere an eclectic trio of new works. Wendy Rein and Ryan T. Smith present Part I of Shadow, a deep dive into the data “debris” we leave behind in our current digital age as a reflection of what makes us human. The Healer, a premiere by Katerina Wong, mines the ancient history, systems, and beliefs of Traditional Chinese Medicine and holistic practices, to shed light on our innate ability to overcome physical and emotional suffering. For the final piece in the program, all three Artistic Directors join forces on a new work that utilizes the Surrealist “exquisite corpse” drawing game as a framework for their creative process. Rein and Smith, working as a pair and using video conferencing from NY, and Wong working in the studio in SF, take turns building material without seeing each others’ previous contributions. In this exploration of process and communication, the company embraces uncertain territory and new possibilities to creation. Thursday, March 12 at 8pm Friday, March 13 at 8pm Saturday, March 14 at 8pm Sunday, March 15 at 3pm

RAWdance Spring Benefit 2020: A Digital Dance Party
We’re taking our annual Spring Benefit online, and we’d love to see you there! It’s our most important event of the year and the culmination of a month-long fundraising drive. The evening will feature new performances, special guest appearances, and an all out digital dance party. So pop some bubbly in the fridge, find an outfit that makes you sparkle, and brush off your best dance moves!
The entirety of your ticket amount goes directly to supporting the company’s artists and creative projects. Your generosity, at any level below, will give you access to the event and is deeply appreciated. Like all performing arts organizations, RAWdance has been hit hard by the impact of COVID-19. Our Spring Benefit provides over a third of our annual budget in a normal year, and is even more vital in this moment, as over half of our 2020 programming has been cancelled or postponed. 100% of each ticket may be counted as a donation to RAWdance, and is tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Friday, May 15th 6pm PDT / 9pm EDT Online, wherever you are! TICKETS
