Project Zahira produces deeply-moving dance theater experiences, braving themes of gender, womanhood, conditioning, personal freedom, and healing; embracing the Consciousness of the Rise of the Sacred Feminine. The works emerge from co-creation.
To be a PZ dancer, another dimension is required besides being a fantastic contemporary dancer. The dancer needs to be willing to choose a process of personal and spiritual transformation, allowing one's vulnerability and authenticity to be present, inviting flow and creativity; ultimately enhancing the quality of their life and that of the choreographic work. The creative process is collaborative and based on principles of a circle of trust. Performance material is explored via dance improvisations, creativity, and writing assignments.
PZ is currently working on Reclaiming the Goddess with dancers/performers/goddesses Merel Cornet (rehearsal assistant), Maria Kuchowicz (artistic assistant), Djahan Manuela, Mazhari Perez, and Jacqueline Back. During the Friese Dansdagen 2018 in the European cultural capital, PZ showed a preview, which also included dancer Ana Portela and fado singer Merel Rumping.
