In a world where human beings seem to be less connected with one another, Zeitgeist is committed to expanding the boundaries of those communities so that all of us can find and feel a sense of belonging - a basic human need.
Zeitgeist Dance Theatre reflects the now, the essence and spirit of the age in which we presently live, while at the same time shaping how we experience it and where we go from here. While paying homage to the ‘now’ and paving a path to the future, we will honor the past and those who came before us through the integration of tools, methods and mindsets that have revolutionized the way we connect and commune with dance and ourselves.
What defines our current age?
Ask one-hundred people and you’ll probably get close to one-hundred varying answers. However, some consensus can be found. Cultures, governments and communities around the world are challenged by massive social, demographic and economic change. Technology has brought about life-saving and life-changing tools. We might also agree that advances have challenged our social order, used as a weapon to tear us apart instead of bring us together. Great progress has been made over the last sixty years, but the inequality of opportunity still haunts us – and has been exacerbated in recent years.
Yet, the current times encompass so much more than our challenges. Within all of the uncertainty confronting us, we find human beings living extraordinary lives – making an impact on others and leaving meaningful legacies.
Zeitgeist Dance Theatre aspires to honor these experiences and many more, engaging with people from all walks of life. We will tell stories, recall memories, evoke feelings, invoke action, and awake consciousness. We will always strive to embrace the individuality and uniqueness of each human being who brings the work to the stage and the diverse communities that surround them.
In a world where human beings seem to be less connected with one another, Zeitgeist is committed to expanding the boundaries of those communities so that all of us can find and feel a sense of belonging – a basic human need.
So here we are, inviting the dance community to join us.
We begin this new journey together with humility and with faith in what is possible when we enter our relationships with integrity.
We look toward history as our guide and the future as inspiration.
