RAWdance is a contemporary dance company under the artistic direction of Ryan T. Smith and Wendy Rein. The company is committed to revealing the essence of our relationships and identities through performance, curation, teaching, and collaboration. With nuanced, crafted works, RAWdance transforms and enlivens both theaters and public spaces.
An award-winning contemporary dance company formed in 2004, RAWdance is known for transforming theaters and public spaces with visually striking and kinetically charged works. Through the unique partnership of Co-Artistic Directors Smith and Rein, the company has earned a reputation for its nuanced, crafted performances that consistently push into exciting new territory. SF Weekly dubbed the company’s work "edgy, sexy inventive fare designed to speak to audiences." The SF Bay Guardian honored RAWdance with a GOLDIE in 2014. A resident company of ODC Theater, RAWdance has also been supported through residencies at the Djerassi Resident Artists Program, Zaccho Dance Theatre, Ucross, Marble House Project, CounterPULSE, and Jon Sims Center. In 2010 the company was awarded a Choreographers in Mentorship Exchange (CHIME) award. The company has performed in Singapore, China, and across the US. RAWdance has brought full-scale dance to art galleries, Yerba Buena Gardens, UN Plaza, Union Square, City Hall, and SF’s Westfield mall, among other venues. RAWdance’s recent work with dance film has received international recognition, including screenings in Europe, Asia, South America, and the US.
