No Frills Dance Happenin'



ZUZI! Dance presents its Spring, biannual No Frills Dance Happenin'. A variety of performers throughout Tucson and Southern Arizona come to share fresh and innovative works from various stages of the creative process. The works range from serious to silly and some are presented here for the first time. 


"No Frills" has been in existence for 18 years and is an important venue for local choreographers to show new work or work in progress. ZUZI! "No Frills" has been described as an open mic for dance and is a unique opportunity to showcase work and perform in a relaxed setting. As the name suggests, there really are no fancy lights, no fancy sets....just dancers, choreographers, experimentation, and a great show!

ZUZI! Theater Presents



The Maternal Instinct

Produced by Theater New and Now

Directed by Maria Caprile

Written by Monica Bauer

Topics include science, genetics, addiction, alcoholism, as a lesbian marriage is put to the test. A play about the science of love, and the love of science. Winner, third place New Works for Young Women, runner-up for New South Writing Prize at the Brighton (UK) Fringe Festival. Previously produced in Boston, New York, Louisiana, and Brighton, England.

What happens when one spouse feels the aching need to have a baby, and the other one refuses to consider it, for reasons that may or may not be true? Lillian's a brilliant research scientist, and a supposedly recovering alcoholic, working on the genetics of the maternal instinct in mice. Her wife, Sarah, wants to have a baby. When Lillian puts her foot down, the marriage is in trouble, and friends and family try to come to the rescue, with comic, and potentially tragic, results. 

March 3-19

Fridays & Saturdays at 7:30pm

Sundays at 2:00pm

An Open Floor investigation into intimacy with self and connection in community



As humans we are social and relational beings. We hunger for connection to others and simultaneously long to feel our individuality and uniqueness. If we perceive these dual (and sometimes dueling) needs are not met, feelings of dissatisfaction and loneliness can arise.

It can be liberating to inhabit a space of pure curiosity to investigate the conditions that might call forth our authentic selves, as well as to experience community as a verb, a web of action and interaction.
As we learn to be fluid, adaptable and empowered beings, we find our natural place and space in community. We see clearly how it is possible for everyone to belong with dignity, kindness and love.

In this workshop we will:
~bring awareness to patterns of movement that foster both our individuality and our sense of belonging.
~seek ways of moving and showing up that are generous to both ourselves and others.
~let go of habits that might create walls or barriers to connection.
~practice presence and cultivate the present moment as a great equalizer in community.
~learn to build tolerance for the unknown and find ground in groundlessness.

Cost: $250

*limited amount of scholarships available

Location: ZUZI Dance: 738 N 5th Ave, Tucson, AZ


Friday March 31: 6:30-9:30 pm

Saturday April 1: 11-6pm

Sunday: April 2: 1-5:30pm
