'Zoom is the best and most original improv I've seen in years. The whole thing is still, quiet and simple – understated – in a way I've rarely seen in improv, or scripted theatre, film or TV, for that matter. I find myself sighing and gasping and wanting to cry. It is serene; it is blissful; it is masterful.' - theatreview.org.nz

Birdman meets Jazz meets Haruki Muarakami in a show unlike any other.

Zoom is a contemporary improvisation format the celebrates language and rythem in a way that creates a truly unique style of theatre.

With only two improvisors, an empty stage and a drummer, Zoom takes the audience on a rich journey filled with imagery created through narration. Spaces transform from one to another characters are discovered in these new locations by the performers and scenes are played.

This original format has been performed in Amsterdam, Hamburg, Canberra, Wellington and Reunion Island. It's been described as Birdman (the movie) for the stage, it's had audiences transfixed.
