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).

I'm taking away a greater sense of "i-can-do-it-ness" and a rediscovered joy. i have a new role model in lynne, an amazing teacher with a strong sense of integrity, knowledge and care. i came to this course with little expectation, a lot of fear and a degree of apathy. i left feeling fulfilled spiritually, mentally and physically. i also left with a renewed desire to challenge myself and spread my dragon wings.

The STOMP programs, which have now been held in all the capital cities in Australia, as well as in Vancouver, Hong Kong and (in 2019) Bristol, Amsterdam and Bulgaria, are week-long physical theatre training intensives.  They are also designed to provide an opportunity for actors, directors, educators, and students to take time out of their busy lives and reconnect with their creative selves. 


the stomp programs introduce participants to Zen Zen Zo’s specialty physical theatre training forms of Viewpoints, Butoh, The Suzuki Method, and the devising technique of Composition. The course caters to both beginners and advanced students in these methods, and is open to artists and non-artists alike.

Historically, pandemics have forced humans to break with the past and imagine their world anew.

This one is no different. It is a portal, a gateway between one world and the next.
