“Zen Zo’s training intensives make you come back to the roots, to connect to the earth, to point zero where everything starts…and that’s the only way to do THEATRE…” FABRYCJA GARIGLIO (Actor, Italy)
Zen Zen Zo’s week-long PHYSICAL THEATRE intensive training package has now been offered all around Australia, as well as in New Zealand, Canada, Singapore, and Hong Kong. It introduces Zen Zen Zo’s specialty actor-training methods – Butoh, the Suzuki Method, Viewpoints and the devising technique of Composition. This holistic training experience offers a solid base in these approaches and focuses on cultivating presence. It is also a journey of transformation – both personally and professionally – as participants take time out to be with themselves, their craft, and other like-minded artists, educators and creative souls.
The training is led by Zen Zen Zo Artistic Director Lynne Bradley, who has worked with the founders of these forms and taught them all over the world. She is a leading pioneer of Physical Theatre in Australia, and renowned for her innovative work with contemporary performance forms such as site-specific, immersive and intimate theatre.

BULGARIA ARTIST'S RETREAT
Sat 20 – Wed 24 July, 2019
Retreat Leaders: Lynne Bradley & Valerie Jeremijenko
“The training is outstanding and what makes the Bulgarian retreats even more special is that it’s surrounded by trees, waterfalls, castles and amazing humans.” MELISSA MANUEL (Aerial Yoga Specialist)
The Bulgaria Artist’s Retreat is a new program, co-presented by Zen Zen Zo Physical Theatre and Yama Yoga Studios, held in the idyllic medieval village just outside of Veliko Tarnova. The course is an immersive retreat designed to re-charge and re-inspire artists away from the pressures of daily life. It is also open to non-artists looking to give themselves the gift of a “creative workout”, and some time out to reflect, rejuvenate and find balance in the increasingly busy rhythm of our contemporary lives.
During the days, participants will experience a holistic mix of yoga, meditation and creative practice. At night they can choose to explore the town, or alternately join the lectures and discussions led by the retreat leaders on a range of stimulating topics, including: Artist Sustainability, Avoiding Burn-Out, Understanding the Enneagram, and Cultivating Mindfulness. The week is designed as a journey of transformation, as participants deepen their artistry, or re-connect with their creative-selves, in a tranquil and awe-inspiring corner of Eastern Europe.
