Sara Zalek is an artist and healer rooted in investigations of personal and collective identity. She is obsessed with time travel, experimental science, hybrids, our evolving ecology, and the intentional act of transformation.​ 

Through Butoh Chicago and saratonin, dbaZalek continues to connect national and international teaching artists with Chicago art makers across genres of the fringe arts and experimentation. She seeks to foster positive communication and arts integration within Chicago’s complex, overlapping sectors by providing opportunities for classes, conversations, workshops and performances.
