619-235-8466

This 6000-square-foot facility houses a 3000-square-foot performance space that seats up to 200 patrons. "Sushi audience members and performers are within hands' reach of each other," pitches Sushi's website, "creating an atmosphere that is charged with intimacy and energy. Audience members are encouraged to socialize after the shows for both formal and informal discussions with the presented artists. Our mission is to present brave, cutting-edge work by emerging and known artists. Our audiences expect raw, powerful, intelligently objectionable art that pushes the boundaries of form and content." In residence at Sushi is Lower Left, a collective of choreographers who challenge traditional dance concepts. The show "Sex Is Ugly" featured award-winning author Karen Finley writhing naked in snack bar condiments.
