Sombra y luz

14th Annual Winter Solstice Performance


ZUZI! celebrates the Solstice with modern and aerial dance in a multi-generational performance including the ZUZI! Professional Company, Apprentice Company, "Many Limbs" Youth Aerial Company, and members of the Annual Community Workshop.


The word Solstice literally means "standing still sun." The winter solstice is the shortest day of the year; it marks the turning from the cold, dark days of winter to the warmer, lighter days of spring and summer. Traditionally, this season was used as a time of reflection, renewal, and community celebration.


ZUZI! CoFounder and Artistic Director, Nanette Robinson, and company members Ekida Laurie, Mechelle Flemming, Carie Schneider, and Karyn Reim are presenting dances. ZUZI! is excited to welcome back former company member Wendy Joy, who will choreograph a company piece. ZUZI! will also feature special musical guest artists Pablo Peregrina, Bobby Ronstadt, Sally Withers, Bubba Fass and Zara Ahmad-Post.


The dances in "Sombra y luz" have been influenced by visual artists such as the Mexican artist and painter, Frida Kahlo and the 19th-Century French artist, Paul Delaroche. These visual inspirations make for an overall larger artistic experience.  


 In addition there will be a silent auction with many items including: jewelry, concert tickets, gift certificates, wine baskets, and much, much more. All proceeds benefit ZUZI!. In this season of giving, ZUZI! offers a gift of magic of movement, creative energy, and reflection.
