Zen Zen Zo's

Zen Zen Zo’s Cabaret

Featuring Triple J's award-winning Brisbane singer/songwriters Emma Dean as Sally, and Sandro Colarelli as the Emcee, PowerArts and QPAC brought Zen Zen Zo’s infamous dance-theatre style (which combines Butoh, Burlesque, Contemporary, Camp), into the Musical Theatre genre, at QPAC's Cremorne Theatre, August 2010.

Supported by a live and outrageous Salon Orchestra led by Musical Director extraordinaire, John Rodgers, and choreographed by Martyn Fleming, Zen Zen Zo’s senior company members joined Emma and Sandro in bringing to life the colourful cabaret world populated by artists, gypsies, queers, Jews – the marginalised Others that found a home in 1930s Germany… before Hitler came to power.

Set Designer Bill Haycock and long-term Zen Zen Zo lighting designer Ben Hughes worked together to create the grotesquely beautiful Weimar Republic cabaret space, as audiences were transported back in time to Nazi Germany, pre WWII.
