Malicious Vixens

Malicious Vixens

Malicious Vixens is a Seattle-based performance collective that comprise of all Asian-American womxn. Directed by Tracey Wong, the group includes Alyssa Oyadomari, Zahra Masaoka, and Grace Masaoka.Together the group sets new standards of aesthetics and choreography. Striving to embrace femininity, roots, individuality, these womxn seek to inspire other womxn to be unique, uplifting, and unapologetic.

Where their name comes from:

Vixens — Another word for fox or in our respective heritages, it is also known at kitsune or hu li jing. There are many folktales about foxes from our roots and the stories are usually about the female fox being able to overcome adversities, being gentle and delicate, but also fierce and able to protect the ones they love.

Malicious When I used to be a house father in ballroom culture, my name was Malicious Hi Chew. I chose this name because of the contrast of being sweet, but also being able to be able to turn on my ferocity and hold my ground so well during the battles. To us, this word is synonymous to being loud. To combat all the stereotypes that try to bring Asian-Americans and womxn down.

We proudly rep this name because we WANT to breakdown stereotypes of folks associating the words with negative connotations. In fact, a lot of street and club dance culture is breaking stereotypes down. Asian womxn are seen as timid, we are told to hide ourselves and to not make too much noise. This sisterhood is about uplifting one another to unite womxn to celebrate one another, to be loud, unapologetically ourselves, and so fierce. We are also very mindful of our audience and understand how to cater our work to different audiences!
