PrismCo Movement Theatre ringside will use the combined grace and power of mixed martial arts to immerse the audience in the action-packed world of competitive MMA fighting with Bruises: Animal vs. Machine. PrismCo's 2016 production of Animal v. Machine is coming back as a touring show and groundbreaking community engagement and theater project.

PrismCo was awarded with a grant from the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs to produce the show in communities in the Dallas area with low access to the arts. Co-founders Jeff Colangelo and Katy Tye will produce and direct this critically acclaimed show in three separate venues across the South and West Dallas areas for six weekends.

Bruises: Animal vs. Machine is a ruthlessly vivid portrait of two passionate women as they compete for glory in the ring. Through a brutally soulful blend of fighting and dance, secrets are revealed and past wounds are re-opened in this awe-inspiring wordless piece. Each hit and blow these women trade cracks open a new layer behind their drive to be in the ring, transforming this match from a rowdy celebration of violence to a poignant exploration of what fuels us to fight for what we want.

Performances March 31-April 9 will take place at the Oak Cliff Cultural Center; the other locations will be announced.
