Zaman Dance Theatre Collective merges students, emerging and professional artists together, to develop performance works that explore social-political themes and human injustice. Performers have included actors, dancers, vocalists and performance poets from New Jersey and the New York City metropolitan area. Collectively, participating artists have brought a diversity of educational backgrounds and artistic skills to the collective and are committed to using their artistic practices to bring awareness through education and performance.
If you are an artist (writer, poet, visual artist, vocalist, musician, actor, dancer) interested in being considered to perform or contribute to an artistic project, submit a headshot, resume and brief artistic statement to firstname.lastname@example.org.
