Zaccho Dance Theatre in the Walking Distance Dance Festival
The African American Performing Arts Coalition and the Black Choreographers Festival: Here & Now are presenting Zaccho Dance Theatre's Between Me and the Other World in free performances as part of ODC's Walking Distance Festival. This potent work is a dynamic exploration of W.E.B DuBois' concept of "double consciousness."
The Zaccho Youth Company invites enthusiastic young people ages 9-18 to come be a part of this exciting ensemble. Potential performance opportunities in the fall include being a part of Zaccho Dance Theatre's The View from Here and African-American Shakespeare Company's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Zaccho Studio is honored to have hosted the development of Artist in Residence Ross Travis' new show Bucko: Whaleman! Using the provocative humor of bouffon (a form of grotesque satirical physical theatre in which characters on the outskirts of society use subversive humor and ecstatic play to highlight ignored or marginalized issues). Bucko investigates religion, natural resource consumption, racism and privilege in maritime history and juxtaposes these subjects with our modern times. Meet Captain Bucko and his scurvy crew, on the crest of the most bountiful whale hunt of their careers. But where does man's ambition end? How do you lay down your harpoon and bring home the haul when the thrill of the hunt consumes you? Come join the slaughter ye salty dogs!
