Petra Zanki & friends

A garden, a countryside within a city, a train away from New York concrete, an opportunity to reconnect and gather. With ourselves, and between ourselves. That’s it, it’s ok. I can breathe.

Blending different genres and styles, Zanki combines themes of art and healing with music and dance to explore the kinds of communities we want to envision in a post-Pandemic world.

Working in co-creation with three New York musicians Stanford Reid- PHUOC, SoulCODE, Nico Tower, and three dancers (Evelyn Tejeda, Lili-Luyan Lee, and Isabelle Goodman) in the garden, Petra creates three choreographic solos using Antonio Vivaldi’s Four Seasons violin concerti as an inspiration. Each dancer together with one musician enters in dialogue with one part  as an inspiration for their own contemporary version of, this time, Fall.

How do dance, ambient, Hip hop, rhythm & jazz, and sound healing connect to Fall, and all of them to me and me to you? Expect soul healing, magic, and joy.
