Description

Zen Zen Zo Physical Theatre present a visually, physically and aurally stunning adaption of Shakespeare’s last play, The Tempest. Directed by Zen Zen Zo Artistic Director Lynne Bradley, this poetic and provocative retelling of Shakespeare’s classic features live music and a cast of 10 actors, dancers and singers.

“With The Tempest, Zen Zen Zo has absolutely nailed it, applying layer upon layer, of contemporary interpretation while retaining Shakespeare’s verse … but what makes The Tempest really work is Lynne Bradley’s direction. Everything is just so well thought-out. The contribution of six original songs from Emma Dean sits comfortably with the romantic contuming and staging, which fits beautifully with the tone of the text, whose lyrical nature is partnered with a striking physical interpretation. Melding these elements togeather and retaining a tone that is identifiably Shakespearean is a testament to dual objectives – fidelity to the text, and innovations of new work – that are fantastically realised.” Mandy Kohler (Time Off)

Production History
