Brutalism: A Dance Performance featuring Dub City Tribe

Brutalism: A Dance Performance featuring Dub City Tribe

For the third installment of their three-month Engagement Party residency at MOCA, artist collective Slanguage presents Brutalism: A Dance Performance featuring Dub City Tribe. The performance will examine the implications of Brutalism, a mid-20th-century architectural style characterized by massive or monolithic forms, usually of poured concrete and typically unrelieved by exterior decoration, within the context of Southern California’s urban landscape. Through choreographed movement, the collective’s teen break-dancing group Dub City Tribe will play with the monumentality that is central to the Brutalist aesthetic, evoke the Brutalist architecture of Los Angeles and Wilmington, California (where Slanguage is based), and explore the consequences of the “concrete jungles” it has yielded. Slanguage DJs will spin genre-skipping sets to create a soundscape for the performance, collaborating dancers and musicians will also perform, and audience members will be encouraged to participate in a nonstop dance-a-thon–style competition.
