Theater maker Zino Schat fuses contemporary dance with urban arts to create a fresh hybrid form of expression. Zino performs continual, in-depth research to stay current with his movement language. The recurring social themes that inspire his works are a reflection of his background as a street performer. He looks into social norms and how different subcultures interact in society as well as how they are represented in different media. For this, his works originate from a source that is inherently human and engages the audiences in an honest way.
