Zeezee Canning, Co-Producer

Zeezee is currently at New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study (‘22) pursuing a concentration in Ideology in Management & Economic Theory with a South-Asian Studies minor. Zeezee began focusing on Valmiki’s Ramayana at the end of Sophomore year in high school, where he was prompted to explore the Eastern concept of “dharma” within the context of the Western world. To explore the concept in full, Zeezee and the King’s Dharma team began using theater, art, and emerging technology to tell a story in the spirit of a Western tragedy, such as Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex or Aeschylus’ Eumenides which were both born out of a larger Epic (i.e. Homer’s Iliad), yet with the style of a modern thriller. Although King’s Dharma is still considered a work in progress, the team hopes to continue experimenting with various methods of storytelling with the goal of navigating the delicate balance between traditional theater and the possibilities modern technology has to offer.
