She dedicated herself to giving that voice a platform from which it could be lifted and heard by all. From that simple dream, The Black Theatre Troupe, Inc. was born and is now a nationally celebrated company. During its fledgling years the company performed in several city facilities before getting its first home in 1976. One of the most important facilities that the City of Phoenix provided during those times was a meeting room at Eastlake Park in downtown Phoenix. Eastlake Park has served the inhabitants of Phoenix since the late 1880’s. Originally known as Patton’s Park, it was developed by the Phoenix Railway Company to serve as a recreational area for the white patrons of the city’s trolley system. The park eventually became a place where people of all races could meet to relax and celebrate special events without violating separatist laws which existed in the nation and state during the first half of the 20th century. After moving from that community room at Eastlake Park the company used various locations in the City, until 1983 when they purchased the historic Temple Beth Hebrew Synagogue in downtown Phoenix, in the heart of what is now the Roosevelt Row District. After an electrical fire in 2001 the company again used multiple facilities. In 2006. a city of Phoenix Bond Election awarded the company $2.5 million for a new home. On February 1, 2013, after a long and successful capital campaign to raise additional funds, BTT celebrated the opening of their new home, The Helen K. Mason Performing Arts Center. This new state of the art facility is located at Washington and 14th Street in downtown Phoenix – exactly two blocks from where it all began: the historic Eastlake Park. About Childsplay Founded in 1977, Childsplay is a nationally and internationally respected professional theatre company whose chosen audience is children. At Childsplay we believe that young people deserve to experience challenging, thought-provoking theatre of the highest artistic quality. Our respect for children’s intelligence and creativity drives us to produce new and innovative works by theatre’s finest artists. Equally, our understanding of the challenges facing Arizona’s classroom teachers leads us to offer arts education resources in 40 communities annually. In the past 36 years, we have educated and inspired more than four million young people and families. We have grown to serve an average annual audience of 200,000 students, teachers, and families. Founder David Saar recognized during his MFA studies that children could reap great benefits from experiences with professional theatre. After graduating, Saar gathered classmates in a 1964 Chevy Impala, and equipped with basic sets and costumes, began performing in local classrooms. Today, performing in schools remains a core Childsplay activity with three annual touring productions that visit hundreds of schools throughout Arizona. It is estimated that one in five Arizona K-6 students will see a Childsplay production at their school. More than half of this audience lives at or below the poverty level. Alongside the tour season, Childsplay’s annual programming includes: nine months of in-house productions for school and family audiences at the Tempe Center for the Arts; an on-site academy of theatre classes throughout the year; and a variety of education outreach programs embedded throughout the greater Phoenix community. # # #

About The Nash The Nash, owned and operated by Jazz in Arizona Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization, is an education and performance venue named in honor of world-renowned drummer and Phoenix native, Lewis Nash. Since its opening in 2012, The Nash has grown to present more than 300 events annually including jazz performances, jam sessions and educational programs – featuring students, top local and regional musicians, national and internationally acclaimed jazz artists and jazz royalty. For 5 years running, DownBeat has included The Nash in its prestigious “List of Great Jazz Venues” in the world. About Lewis Nash Internationally acclaimed jazz drummer Lewis Nash, named the most valuable player in jazz by Modern Drummer Magazine, was described by Ira Gitler of The Biographical Encyclopedia of Jazz as "Perhaps the most talented drummer of his generation." Lewis grew up in south Phoenix and by the early age of 10 years old began playing drums. At age 21 he moved to New York City, where he became the drummer of choice for an incredible array of artists - from jazz masters to the hottest young players of today. His 30-year career includes performance on 10 Grammy award-winning albums and an impressive discography of over 400 recordings with jazz legends such as Betty Carter, Tommy Flanagan, Dizzy Gillespie, Oscar Peterson, McCoy Tyner, Hank Jones, Joe Henderson, Sonny Rollins, Ron Carter and Clark Terry, as well as such contemporary jazz artists as Branford Marsalis, Wynton Marsalis, Diana Krall, Joe Lovano and Roy Hargrove. A highly respected educator and clinician, Lewis joined the faculty of the ASU School of Music in January 2017 as the Bob and Gretchen Ravenscroft Professor of Practice in Jazz.

Privacy Policy

Zonafied Family Networks LLC is committed to ensuring the privacy of our customers' personal information, and this privacy notice is designed to voluntarily comply with current privacy legislation.

COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

ZONAFIED FAMILY NETWORKS LLC limits its requests for information to what is required to ensure accurate service. Most of the information we collect is very basic and is needed to complete a purchase or provide a refund. Examples of customer information that may be collected include your name, address, telephone number, email address, credit- or debit-card information, descriptions of the items requested or purchased the IP address and operating system of your computer, and the browser type and version being used.

Navigation Information

Even if you do not make a purchase on our site, we have the ability to track usage of our web site, including what pages are visited, what products are viewed, and the third-party sites that led you to Zonafied Family Networks LLC.com. This information is not used to track information about individuals, but is used at an aggregate level to customize our site, improve the online experience, and plan advertising and promotions.

Information Voluntarily Provided

There are times when you may provide information to us voluntarily. This occurs when you provide feedback to us through emails, return forms, letters, or telephone calls. We use this information to respond to your query, to keep track of customer feedback, and to improve our service to customers.

Internet Database

ZONAFIED FAMILY NETWORKS LLC has created an Internet database to allow customers to store their shipping and billing information, track the status of their order, list previous orders, and retain email preferences. Registration is entirely voluntary, and you have the ability to correct or delete the information at any time. This information is accessed through the "My Account" section of the site.

Marketing Practices

ZONAFIED FAMILY NETWORKS LLC does not sell or otherwise share your personal information with anyone else, such as advertising agencies or marketing companies. We only send marketing information to those customers who specifically sign up for our mailing list. Customers can opt-out of receiving information by using the "unsubscribe" option in any marketing email that they receive or by changing their preferences in the "My Account" section of the site.

Commitment to Children

ZONAFIED FAMILY NETWORKS LLC does not collect or maintain information from people that we know are under 13 years old, and we do not specifically target this group in our marketing materials or other advertising.

DISCLOSURE AND RETENTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

ZONAFIED FAMILY NETWORKS LLC will share your personal information internally with those staff members who need it to complete your purchase or carry out your instructions regarding the receipt of marketing information. Authorized ZONAFIED FAMILY NETWORKS LLC service providers may also have access to this information in order to carry out their responsibilities directly connected with the processing of your purchases or handling of customer service issues. Outside of these activities, we will not disclose your personal information to any third party without your written consent unless required to do so by law.

ZONAFIED FAMILY NETWORKS LLC keeps your personal information for only as long as required to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected. In some cases, such as credit- or debit-card purchases, we are required by law to keep your personal information for a specified period of time. For those customers who have registered for the mailing list, their personal information is kept until we are notified that they no longer want their information stored.

Employees are provided with training and information regarding the proper handling of personal information.

This icon appears in your web browser to tell you that you are viewing a secure web page. Also, all browsers display an "s" after the "http" (https://) in the web site address to indicate that you are in a secure environment.

This means you pay nothing if unauthorized charges are made to your card as a result of shopping at the ZONAFIED FAMILY NETWORKS LLC Online Store.

Film: Parting Light
Hawkinsdance
(Breaking Ground Commissioned Artist)
The Crystal Cave
 
Hawkinsdance will be premiering a work that imagines a perfect and hidden place, undisturbed and uncorrupted, subject to the laws of nature but not the effects of humanity. Original score by Anton Faynberg.
Mac Allen
I don't want to keep opening and closing doors. I'm tired of losing things.
 
In my new work "I don't want to keep opening and closing doors. I'm tired of losing things.", I am unpacking my childhood experiences in relation to coming out as queer. Some themes that are arriving in this process are opening and closing, surrendering, arriving at the pain and softening, tension and the space in between created by violence and fear, and vulnerability. This connects to a larger conversation with the LGBTQA+ community with the process of coming out and how it affects our mental health and progressing towards a normalcy in our society as opposed to "other".
Jordan Daniels
(Breaking Ground Commissioned Artist)
Eleanor
 
"Eleanor” is a framework in which to approach the topic of human uniqueness and exceptionalism. Choreographer Jordan Daniels investigates First lady Eleanor Roosevelt's life as a vehicle to explore the human desire of to rise above one's natural born circumstance. A cast of 5 exceptional women and multiple projection sites provide a current perspective on this complex, iconic historical figure.
Noble Dance Motion
DRONE
You are being watched! As we move dangerously closer to AI, Drone looks at technology intervening in our privacy and manipulating our behavior. The main character is a flying drone and its human manifestation played by Seth McPhail. Dancers perform complex partnering with their eyes closed as the drone hovers vigilantly. Movement inspiration was drawn from watching our kids interact with an iPad and content was inspired by recently publicized data privacy breaches.
Noble Dance Motion
FRAGMENT
Haunting and visceral, Fragment plays with memory distortion by interweaving video with live dance. Created in collaboration with lighting/technology artist David Deveau, Fragment enters the mind of a broken woman and depicts her deepest fears. About integrating the technology, Deveau shares, “What was exciting about developing Fragment was we combined our skills of making dance for the stage with dance for the camera and created a hybrid work.”
Nadar Rosano
The Freedom To Choose
 
Nadar Rosano arrives from Tel Aviv, Israel to perform in Breaking Ground 2019. His piece, "The Freedom To Choose," explores the human search for emotional connections and experience. Two characters exist within walls, looking for a loving glance, a warm hug, a connection which always seems to be missing. Through this, they unveil the true nature of love and the deep solitude found in the shell of every day life.
Trebien Pollard
Shaking the Devil: the black swan effect
 
Shaking the Devil: the black swan effect is a solo work, conceived and performed by Trebien Pollard. This work presents itself as a meditation on living – a conversation with the dead - a prayer for the hopeless and a lament for the lost. The work seeks to explore the process of healing and how the limits of the body can transgress the treads of trauma and enclosures? By examining the inner fragments of existence, the work addresses the vulnerability of identity shaped by layered memories, thoughts and losses.
FILM
Parting Light - Suzanne Beahrs
"Parting Light" is a dance film with a lone dancer in the isolated wildness of the California desert. This work explores exposing oneself to the the beautiful and harsh desert landscape, gaining strength from one's environment while being open to this vulnerable situation.
Michael Crotty
The Dead Tree
 
"The Dead Tree' is a dance theater work that is a reimagining of "Lord of the Flies". In this work, the cast of five dancers bumps up against classic tropes from children's literature that has them confronting shared realities from their own childhoods.
 
Created over a period of three months, each dancer developed characters whose expressions, monologues, embodiment and interactions are a response to their own experiences with childhood. The result is a dance theater work that is playful, aggressive, and at times...savage.
Kalin Green
Ken
 
“Ken” is structured around what it means to lead a plastic life and questions where the discussion value belongs in our lives. Is there a time where items or events become of equal value to an individual or their place in the matter? If so, when and what is the price? The movement is intended to mimic a mannequin or doll and will be paired with an ambient mix of expensive and free scores. Opera like sounds contrasted by the sounds of a youth choir. The price tag is based on your relation to the two worlds.
CONDER/dance
and so it goes
 
What does the end look like? End of a story, end of a chapter, end of a conversation. The choreographer is confronting the reality that life is made up of a series of endings before the final end. Exploring her own difficulty with change and the finalities of life, the soundscore consists of iconic breakup songs from the early 1960’s and provides a container to investigate the human response to endings in all their forms.
FILM
Eckman - Kessie - Wooder
Mother of All Time
 
An experimental dance project that explores the relationship between time, space, dance, and music. This was the first of its kind to combine choreographed dance, hyperlapse presentation, and dramatic camera movement. The piece shows how a person's interpretation of time can affect their perception of movement.
Eric Handman
Upcoming Premiere for 2019 Breaking Ground
 
This dance is a new work commissioned by Carley Conder for her company CONDER/dance. This is the first time in five years that Conder has allowed an outside choreographer to create on the CONDER/dance dancers. She chose Eric Handman for his exquisite skill in working with the partnered form in contemporary dance and his uniquely fluid yet wild movement style. CONDER/dance looks forward to working with and premiering a new work by this nationally recognized artist.
