DISCO RIOT exists to elevate a collaborative art culture in San Diego and beyond — because the world needs more movement-based art. We seek to connect dancers and artists who want to move themselves and audiences in ways that push boundaries, and to make high impact art that promotes community, justice, and movement as a form of radical expression.
Disco Riot's S P A C E Alliance Studio Residency Program - promoting the cooperation of local space and movement artists.
Art Produce has partnered with Disco Riot in 2020 to provide space to Jaime Nixon.
His project explores the questions:
Why do our bodies produce sound? If we make sound, does that mean we are heard? What is the value of listening, and how can we interpret symbols and fantasies through the sounds of our lives?
Jaime will be collaborating long-distance with Angel Acuña.
Watch Disco Riot's most recent work - current.
current is an examination of global systems of oppression, the interconnected nature of environmental and social justice, freedom of movement, and the possibility of embodied expression as a tool for cultivating resilience.
The live performance of this work was intended to be an up-close-and-personal experience; audiences of 20 in the intimate space of the Art Produce gallery. COVID-19 turned the work into dance on film. Give it a watch!
