Video Description:

MashUp Contemporary Dance Company commissioned Madison Hicks to choreograph Fragility to premiere at MashUp’s International Women’s Day Dance Festival. “I’m really trying to challenge this idea of fragility," said Madison Hicks. "I hope that we understand that it’s okay to be fragile, it's okay to be vulnerable, it’s a part of life and we have to be fragile and vulnerable to find our strength as well.”

Making this video w was a dream come true. Inspired by the all-consuming force of infatuation, we worked to create intricate shapes with the dancers’ bodies, in which a single movement sparks a chain reaction across the cast - much like a row of falling dominoes. We hope you love it as much as we do! 💘

It’s National Women’s Equality Day! We’ll share more about this important milestone in history in our stories throughout the day, but in the meantime, we’re kicking off the day with a matching gift! One of our board members has promised to match every donation that comes in today up to $250! Will you help us do it? Your support is so important in helping ensure MashUp can continue to produce programs and performances uplifting women artists for long into the future. Venmo or visit the link in bio to give now!


Two days left of our summer fundraising push! Today…we’re curious…how many people can we get to give $5 - approximately the cost of your morning coffee, tea, or pastry? We’ll keep the tally going in the stories throughout the day…but at just $5, we need at least 100 people in order to meet our daily goal! Venmo or visit the link in bio to give now.


Our Choreographic Residency application is intentionally simple and quick for artists to submit and share their artistic proposal and perspective with MashUp. Apply by August 31st at our link in bio to receive artistic development, a $1000 stipend, and a work in progress showing.


MashUp’s performance on Friday is composed, choreographed, and danced by all female-identifying artists in commemoration of National Women’s Equality Day (also Friday). This year is MashUp’s 5th production created in honor of this important milestone in history. Some of our summer fundraising campaign is to cover the costs of this year’s production, and we haven’t made it yet. We’ve still set our eyes on raising at least $500 per day this week. Help us prove we can do it! Venmo or visit the link in bio now!


Thank you for helping us raise $130 yesterday! If all those seeing this post gave $10, we’d meet today's goal! Can you help us get there? Venmo or visit the link in bio to give online right now and help us fill our donation grid in our Instagram stories!


It’s show week! AND it’s the last push for our summer fundraising campaign!! We’re aiming to raise at least $500 per day to get us closer to our goals of covering the costs of POWER, supporting our dancers, and establishing more solid footing on which to build the future of MashUp post-pandemic. But we need your help. If all those seeing this post gave around $10, we’d meet Day 1’s goal. A little can go a long way when we all jump in together! Venmo or visit the link in bio to give online right now - and watch our stories for updates throughout the day and week!


Wishing company member Megan a very happy birthday! We hope your dang was magical ✨


P O W E R Artist Spotlight: Margot MacDonald. We’re so excited to debut an original score composed by , alongside P O W E R next Friday. Featured on NPR and TEDx; songwriter, vocalist and live looper, Margot MacDonald embodies a one-woman band. Originally a guitarist and pianist, Margot now focuses on unconventional vocal accompaniments, created and looped live into 20-part rhythmic a ca****la pieces. Through lush layers and striking melodies, it's easy to forget the technology she hones. Her latest 2022 release is a collaborative record with The North Country under Misra Records, as Margot cooks up new solo works.


P O W E R is officially sold out! We are so grateful for our community's support, and excited to share our first full-length performance with you, since 2019. Thank you ✨


What motivates the work you do? For MashUp, it's a vision of an empowering, broadly connected and radically welcoming dance community where no one feels alone, where female-identifying artists are not objectified, consistently paid less or underrepresented in leadership roles, and where all feel welcome to find their place within this incredible art form. What's more, we have a dream of Los Angeles as an international hub for advancing women in the arts and a world leader in celebrating women's creativity and giving voice to groups historically silenced - all contributing to a better, more vibrant, just, and empathetic region and world. What's the "why" that keeps YOU going?


Since opening our Fall Residency submissions, we've been reflecting on the joy and wonder of our Spring Choreographic Residency with artist Waeli Wang. We're so grateful to have experienced Waeli's artistic prowess, exploring their grandmother's story through their piece "Run". and the intentionality that Waeli brought to the space when collaborating with our performers. We're looking forward to seeing the next iteration of "Run", and so excited to see who will be our next artist in residency!

Apply to our residency program by August 31st:

RSVP for the future work in progress premiere, on November 19th:

We're excited to announce that our November 19th Fall work-in-progress performance will also include a remounting of our spring residency work, "Run" .


What story are you eager to share with your community? Apply to MashUp's Choreographic Residency by August 31st, and create an original feminist dance piece— with our 11 company dancers, a $1000 stipend, 27 hours of rehearsal and mentorship!

Apply today:


To some of us, power may feel subtle and implicit; something we may not notice in our everyday rhythms. To others, power cannot be ignored. It's everywhere; in what jobs we obtain, education, healthcare, who gets to build what and where, or even in the dynamics of our interpersonal relationships.

As we approach National Women’s Equality Day on August 26th, MashUp is contemplating the United States' long history of disempowered people fighting for power and rights—continuing in present day. We hope you'll join us in continuing these contemplations by attending our upcoming full-length show, POWER and accompanying panel conversation (August 26th).

POWER, August 26th Tickets:


Did you know less than 17% of full-length world premieres in the 2019-2020 seasons were choreographed by women? (Dance Data Project, 2021). That is in part why our upcoming performance P O W E R is such a big deal to MashUp. Join us on August 26th, to watch the premiere of our first full-length performance since 2019— choreographed, composed, and performed by women.


An Important Update about MashUp's upcoming performance of "POWER:" Due to a scheduling error, our performance venue cancelled our rental this week. MashUp has been able to secure another venue, but needed to change our performance date from Saturday, August 27 to Friday, August 26th. The performance time will remain the same - 7:30pm. All information has been updated and you can reserve your tickets on our website. Those who already reserved tickets have had the date adjusted and full refunds are available if you are unavailable to attend because of the date change. Thank you for your understanding, and we are still so excited to share this special work with you!
