It’s Here! Our 2020-2021 Season!

We are living through extraordinary times of global complexity, uncertainty, and a sea of question marks within many sectors. 

As live event makers, we create the unexpected, we respond in the immediate, we investigate community building in new ways that are still heartwarming, eye opening, challenging, and subversive. Artists create beauty and we create opportunities to reflect and we create moments of communal laughter and joy.

Our question for this, our 13th season, in the midst of a pandemic and a revolution dismantling white supremacy is “How do we share our humanity now?”  Please join us on this journey.

Thank you for believing in Zee Zee and the arts as a force for positive change.
