STOMPING GROUND: AUSTRALIA'S LEADING PHYSICAL THEATRE SUMMER SCHOOL
A fantastic experience! A whole bunch of new tools, practical and dynamic, wrapped up in a blanket of holistic yumminess! Stimulating, useful, thought‑provoking and challenging – I enjoyed every minute.
Julie Nolan (Artistic Director, Red Leap Theatre, New Zealand).
The best kick-start to a year I’ve ever had. A kick up the bum mentally and physically – like nitro for an actor; I loved it!
Peter Rasmussen (Casting Director).
2021 will mark Stomping Ground’s 22nd year. This annual physical theatre summer intensive training program, which was the first of its kind in Australia, will be led by Zen Zen Zo founders and directors, Lynne Bradley and Simon Woods, and the Zen Zen Zo company members. The aim of this 2-week course is to introduce artists to a range of physical theatre disciplines, including Zen Zen Zo’s specialty areas – The Suzuki Method, Butoh, Viewpoints, and the devising technique of Composition.
Stomping Ground will provide a solid base in these approaches and focus on developing the performer’s physical, vocal and ensemble skills. It is also a journey of transformation – both personally and professionally – as participants begin the new year by refining their goals for the year ahead, shaping their craft, and meeting fellow artists with similar interests and beliefs.
