ZUZI! Dance presents the spring edition of its biannual No Frills Dance Happenin’. A variety of choreographers 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. This year features choreographers from ZUZI!, Condanza, Evolve Dance West , HipNautique belly dance troupe, Cirque Roots’ Stephanie Cortez, Phoenix-based MAC & Company. and Canyon Del Oro High School, among others. There will be live musical accompaniment by Martha and Greg Stitt for Carol Reinhart’s Flamenco piece and by Glenn Weyant for a dance improvisation. Performances on the ground and in the air are interspersed with the off-the-wall antics of ZUZI!’s lovable MC, Carie Schneider.
“The ‘No Frills’ concert has come to serve two important purposes,” says ZUZI!’s Artistic and Executive Director, Nanette Robinson. “It has become a popular venue for showcasing youth performers, schools, and youth choreography and it continues to be venue for local choreographers to take creative risks with new work.” The show has been described as an open mic for dance and is a unique opportunity to perform in a relaxed setting. As the name suggests, there are no frills—no fancy lights, no fancy sets—just dancers, choreographers, and experimentation.
No Frills Dance Happenin’ will be presented in two distinct shows—Friday, March 6th will highlight youth choreographers and performers and Saturday, March 7th will showcase adult artists. Both shows begin at 7:30 PM in the ZUZI! Theater at the Historic Y at 738 N. 5th Avenue in Tucson. Tickets will be available at the door for $10 for adults and $5 for youth under 18.
