RETURN: 17th Annual Solstice Concert & Gala!


Friday-Sunday, December 19-21

7:30 PM


ZUZI! Dance Company celebrates the Solstice with modern and aerial dance in a multi-generational performance titled, "Return." The two-night event includes performances by the ZUZI! Professional Company, Apprentice Company, "Many Limbs" Youth Aerial Company, and members of the Releasing into Performance Community Workshops. This year also features dance pieces by former company members that have ventured out from ZUZI!, returning to share their new perspectives and new choreography. In addition to the performances, there is a reception and silent auction to benefit ZUZI! as a non-profit arts organization.

On the shortest day of the year, the winter solstice marks the beginning of the return of warmer, lighter days. Traditionally, this season was used as a time of reflection, renewal, and community celebration. In that spirit, ZUZI! has invited former company members to perform choreography never before seen in Arizona. These special guests include Alison Hart from Los Angeles, Nathan Dryden from Salt Lake City, Mechelle Tunstall, and Bridget Gunning from the School of Acrobatics and New Circus Arts in Seattle.

A silent auctio--containing items such as jewelry, fine art photography and paintings, pottery, and two (2) tickets to anywhere Southwest Airlines flies--will span all three nights, closing with a reception after the performance on Sunday, December 21st.

$10 donation for Friday, December 19th open dress Rehearsal
$20 for Saturday, December 20th performance 

$25 for Sunday, December 21st performance & reception
