ZUZI! Dance, Apprentice, and Youth Companies present:

"White Moon Dances" at Metal Arts Village

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

5:30 PM

Metal Arts Village Sculpture Garden
3230 N. Dodge Blvd
Tucson, AZ 85716


Due to inclement weather, last week's "White Moon Dances" were postponed until the next full moon, which will be Thursday, November 6th. Also, because of shortened daylight hours, we've bumped the performances up to begin at 5:30 PM


ZUZI! Dance Company presents "White Moon Dances" in the Sculpture Garden of Metal Arts Village. The evening will begin at 5:30 with roving improvised performances by members of ZUZI! Dance Company, ZUZI! Apprentice Company, and ZUZI!'s "Many Limbs" Youth Company. At 6:00, dancers will perform a short piece combining site-specific choreography and improvisation, inspired by the work of Trisha Brown, the first female choreographer to receive the coveted MacArthur "genius" award. Brown is renowned for her contributions to the development of the "release" technique, the incorporation of design and technology in her choreography, and her unusual collaborations with visual artists and avante-garde composers. In that spirit, ZUZI! Dance companies will be performing with local musicians, Glenn Weyant and Pablo Peregrina.

Playwright Eugenia Woods weaves together stories of 5 central characters from Mexico, The Hopi Nation, China, Zimbabwe, and one composite character representing the voices of refugee women from Iraq, Egypt, Ethiopia and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The play examines what compels these characters to leave home, what they are forced to leave behind, and how they attempt to create a new home in a foreign land.

Director Marc David Pinate of Borderlands Theater and Choreographer Nanette Robinson of ZUZI! are partnering in creating the physical language of the play, set against Artist/Scenic Designer Wesley Creigh's sculptural installation.

Opening night is free thanks to a generous grant from the Tucson Pima Arts Council. Tickets will be offered on a first come-first serve basis with project participants receiving priority seating. Donations are welcome. 


Ticket reservations may be made by email at or by calling 520 975 4021..
