JUST A PHASE
ARTS DISTRICT Liberty Station
Just a Phase is a program of ten short dance pieces, each representing various phases and experiences in everyone’s lives (childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, independence, relationships, community).
Originally co-conceived and co-choreographed by John Malashock and Tristian Griffin, Just a Phase is a program of ten short dance pieces, each representing various phases and experiences in everyone’s lives (childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, independence, relationships, community). These small works form a loose narrative, taking the audience on a trip through these life stages. The show features eight dancers from Malashock Dance to tell a story that everyone will relate to. The incredibly compelling music ranges from pop to classical to contemporary.
Founded by John Malashock in 1988, Malashock Dance’s impressive track record includes the performance of 100 original dance works, annual performances, and workshops, and collaboration with other cultural organizations. Malashock Dance productions have earned top awards in San Diego among the dance and theater communities, including six Emmy Awards for its dance films, which have aired on over 30 affiliate PBS stations nationwide. John Malashock received the Bravo Icon Award in 2017. Malashock Dance has been recognized with numerous accolades and invitations to collaborate with major arts organizations including the San Diego Opera, San Diego Symphony, KPBS-TV, Museum of Photographic Arts, San Diego Repertory Theatre, La Jolla Music Society, the Mainly Mozart Festival, Old Globe Theatre, La Jolla Playhouse and Art of Élan.
