2015 Viola Nominee: Excellence in the Performing Arts
BZB Project: The Big Show
The Big Show was a performance at the Orpheum Theater in April 2014 in Flagstaff, a Big Zona production by Margeaux Beatrix.
A production of epic proportions consisting of 30-40 local performers of varying backgrounds and skill sets, the Big Show was the culmination of a year long performance art project that motivated a diverse cast of flagstaff friends and free spirits to see what kind of show could be completed with a small amount of rehearsal time and no real budget. Many of the performers had very minimal stage/dance/vocal backgrounds, but the group empowerment of a unified goal brought out the best in the group and they were able to achieve something wonderful together. The BZB project really empowered many to be courageous in their ability to perform and work within a large group to accomplish quite the spectacle, that’s some pretty fun art.
