Zen Zen Zo's THE TEMPEST

15 – 31 August, 2019

“The dark originality evident in this radical retelling of Shakespeare’s The Tempest will not disappoint. It is both a captivating cabaret and a delightful slice of contemporary physical theatre that offers intellectual and emotional exercise – an absolute must-see.” (Adam Brunes – Bristix)

To celebrate 10 years since Zen Zen Zo’s THE TEMPEST (adapted by Lynne Bradley) last graced the stage, and its inclusion in the new Queensland senior syllabus, we are excited to announce that we will be remounting our Matilda Award-winning 2009 production in August, 2019!

Directed by our Artistic Director, Dr Lynne Bradley, this poetic and provocative retelling of Shakespeare’s classic features original live music (composed by Brisbane chanteuse extraordinaire, Emma Dean) and a dynamic cast of actors, dancers and singers. Audiences should expect the unexpected as they are lead around the theatre throughout the show, in this immersive theatre production, becoming involved in the action… 

The last season sold out, and 2019’s The Tempest looks to be no exception, with tickets already in high demand! If you’d like to get a head start, you can PURCHASE THE SCRIPT through Playlab.

“Lynne Bradley’s choreography and direction is incredible. This show is a magical rock concert and a beautifully choreographed dance and you’ll love it. Zen Zen Zo’s version of The Tempest is highly recommended.” (Katherine Lyall-Watson – Our Brisbane.com)

 “Lynne Bradley’s charming production is the latest offering from a company that specializes in richly imagined adaptations of classics. The ensemble delivers with radiant force, but singer-songwriter Emma Dean as Ariel, who wrote the pop-infused score, is superb.” (Gillian Bramley-Moore – The Courier Mail)
