The fall is upon us and ZUZI! is looking for artists of all genres to become a member of the Performing Arts Coalition.


ZUZI! is seeking groups involved in theater, dance, or circus as well as other performing artists to band together and create a shared home nestled in the upper 4th Avenue District. ZUZI! Theater is a 135-seat theater at The Historic Y.

As downtown Tucson continues to develop, so must performing artists develop new strategies to reach their audiences.  The hope is that by bringing other small groups together we can create a hub of theater, dance, and performing arts. Thus was born The Performing Arts Coalition at ZUZI! or PACZ.


"We want to see other performing arts and companies have a home," says ZUZI! Dance Co-founder, Nanette Robinson, "with a dedicated, year-round rehearsal space with each organization or individual artist, bringing its own team of performers, artists and dancers and their own mission and style to the PACZ stage."


 The formation of PACZ will give fledgling organizations the opportunity to have a home in which to produce. Although ZUZI!'s focus is dance and somatic healing practices, part of their goal is to provide opportunities and resources for individuals to discover and confidently navigate their creative paths. Shawn Burke, owner of The Historic Y where PACZ is housed, endorses this new direction. "My vision," explains Burke, "has been to build upon the  dynamic, progressive, and creative atmosphere that ZUZI! originally brought when it opened for business here in 1999.  The new Performance Arts Coalition is the perfect addition." 


If you would like to find out more regarding this great opportunity please contact us.


We thank you for your time and attention and hope to see you around the studio or at a show!
