My Sublime Shadow: Zen Zen Zo at the Old Museum Building, Bowen Hills
Further details from company website
My Sublime Shadow is a risqué new work that fuses the decadent German Weimar Republic Cabaret with Zen Zen Zo’s infamous dance-theatre style.
This IN THE RAW Studio Season production will give Brisbane audiences the chance for a very limited release sneak-peak of a show that is set to take the touring circuit by storm. It is directed by Zen Zen Zo Physical Theatre’s artistic director Lynne Bradley (director of the 2009 Matilda Award-winning production of The Tempest and sell-out seasons of Zeitgeist in Brisbane, Edinburgh and Adelaide) and combines the talents of Zen Zen Zo senior company members Dale Thorburn (2009 Matilda award nominee for Caliban, The Tempest) and Jillian Geurts (Miranda, The Tempest) with long-term collaborators, renowned singer/songwriters Emma Dean (Ariel, The Tempest; Women in Voice 15; 2006 & 2009 Finalist in QSong Awards) and Jacob Diefenbach (2010 Green Room Award winner; 2009 Melbourne Fringe Festival Best Cabaret Award).
The production investigates the Jungian archetype of the Shadow – our darker sides and our chaotic wild selves, our demons and our fears. The Shadow comes out to play in dreams, fantasies and nightmares… Jung insists that the only path forward is to meet our Shadows, to confront them, to “devour” them.
My Sublime Shadow will be a naughty night of cabaret and dance-theatre featuring both famous and original songs sung by Emma Dean and Jacob Diefenbach, as they journey inexorably towards meeting and “devouring” their shadows…
Tues-Thurs 8.00pm; Fri 9.00pm; Sat 8.00pm & 10.30pm
