sarazalek2015WV Sara Zalek is a performing artist and facilitator. Rooted in physical investigations of trauma, resilience, and hybrids, their work challenges the capitalist quest for the eternal elixir, and asserts that disruption has the ability to create social and ecological change.

Through Butoh Curious and Butoh Chicago, Zalek connects national and international teaching artists with Chicago art makers across genres in the independent and fringe arenas (including dance, Butoh, Physical Theater, Experimental Music). They create opportunities for positive communication and arts integration using workshops, performances, and conversations about our personal and collective body.
