EVENT DETAILS
ZUZI! Dance and ConDanza Repertory Company are sharing the stage for a spring concert titled, “In the Moment.” The two companies will be premiering new work combined with deeper explorations of previous choreography, focusing on themes of embodiment and temporal presence. ZUZI! is a long-standing fixture in the Tucson dance community as its premier multigenerational dance program blending modern and aerial dance. ZUZI! Dance will be presenting a continuation of a dance that premiered in the fall, expanding it in six connected sections by dancers aged 11-60 . “Coming, Going, Returning” is inspired by concepts of love and letting go, and will combine modern and aerial dance with poetry and vocal accompaniment by Sally Withers.

A much newer company, ConDanza focuses on technique and the learning process as primary components in personal expression. "By company, we mean a group of different people with different backgrounds and opinions," says founder, César R. Degollado. “We have different physiques and mindsets, but are all moving in the same direction.” ConDanza’s contemporary repertory is physically demanding and artistically stimulating , emphasizing strong technique as a base from which to build expansive movement qualities and confident performance. Degollado uses sound anatomical practices to encourage strength, stamina, flexibility, versatility, musicality, dynamics, and phrasing to tell each dancer’s story of their process of learning, in order to elevate audiences to an emotional state that moves with the choreography.

One of the dance sections, “Paths”, was premiered in 2001 in a tour to Venezuela.  This performance will feature added choreography by company members Chris Smith, Shannon Taylor, and Shelby Taylor and the addition of ConDanzita, the youth professional training company.  ConDanza will also be performing “Ludico” with dancer Amie Kilgore and our director, César R’ Degollado.  This contemporary pas de deux was created in 1999 and has been performed in Tucson, San Francisco, San Jose, Berkeley, Scotland, Venezuela, and Mexico, where it won honorable mention at a national choreography competition in 2001.
