Zoellner Arts Center is pleased to announce On Stage At Home, a virtual Guest Artist Series that features six performances recorded exclusively for Zoellner for online release. Our first event showcases:

Sankofa Danzafro, an Afro-Colombian dance company, performs their work The City of Others. Artistic director and choreographer Rafael Palacios created this work by drawing from the troupe’s personal experiences with racism and oppression in their daily lives. Using traditional and contemporary rhythms and dances, it examines the lack of opportunities for the many people of color, who for generations have endured ethnic discrimination and social inequality. This performance was recorded at the Teatro Metropolitano de Medellín in Colombia. Click HERE for the playbill.
