Z Space is a San Francisco hub for artists and audiences to revel in the creation, development, and production of new work, and is renowned for its artistic innovation and risk-taking. The theater commissions, develops, presents, and produces a full season of new works from a variety of disciplines including theater, dance, music, performance art, and new media. Recently expanded to include Z Below, an additional small theater space onsite, Z Space plans to produce and present up to sixteen new works in its two theaters, reaching more than 20,000 audience members. Z Space is also home to several presenters, including Word for Word, Litquake, and Golden Thread Productions (a Hewlett Foundation grantee). With continued support, Z Space, supported by the creation of a New Work initiative, intends to ride the tide of its recent growth, looking at venue usage, technical preparedness, and artistic planning processes, while building the capacities of a newly invigorated and engaged board.
