About Z Space
In 1993, visionary David Dower founded The Z Space Studio (the name would later shorten to Z Space) to support a large and evolving community of theatre artists working together in the Bay Area. It became one of the nation’s leading laboratories for developing new voices, new works, and new opportunities in American theater. Throughout the 90s and early 00s, Z Space was privileged to work with such luminaries as Josh Kornbluth, Anne Galjour, Randall Wong, and Brian Thorstensen. Lisa Steindler joined Z Space in 2007 as Executive Artistic Director and has since brought it to exciting new heights. In 2009, Z Space leased a theater space for the first time and moved into the former Theatre Artaud. Since then Z Space has become a unique hybrid organization that focuses equally on producing, presenting, and developing new work. Eschewing traditional theater models with fixed seasons and subscription packages, Z Space continues its long-standing choice to remain flexible, to focus on artists’s needs and to facilitate the time and resources necessary to develop each project fully.
