Zen Zen Zo - Zeitgiest

Zeitgiest

Zeitgeist is a retrospective of Zen Zen Zo's Butoh inspired dance-theatre works since 2000. Drawing from the critically acclaimed productions Unleashed, Those with Lucifer, and most recently Zen Zen Zo's international collaborations with American band The Dresden Dolls, Zeitgeist is a collection of raw and provocative pieces that reflect "the spirit (Geist) of our times (Zeit)". This groundbreaking work asks the question, how are we as human beings interacting with ourselves, each other, and the earth at the turn of the new Millennium? The answer is at times heart-breaking, at others humorous, but ultimately hopeful, as the dancers weave together physical theatre, poetic ritual, burlesque, camp, and comedy in Zen Zen Zo’s hallmark style.

WHERE:
Old Museum Building, Crn of Gregory Tce and Bowen Bridge Rd, Bowen Hills

THE ENNEAGRAM WEEKEND WORKSHOP Sat 8 – Sun 9 March

WISDOM & COMPASSION WEEKEND WORKSHOP Sat 15 – Sun 16 March

In 2004, 2006 and 2007, Zen Zen Zo Physical Theatre hosted exciting weekend workshops with Lawrence Graziose from the USA, a renowned teacher of The Enneagram and of the Zen Buddist/Taoist View of Human Nature. We are pleased to welcome him back in 2008 and he has suggested that this may be his last visit to Australia for a while due to exciting opportunities available to him in the USA…so this may be your last chance!

THE ENNEAGRAM WEEKEND WORKSHOP Sat 8 – Sun 9 March (10AM – 5PM)

The Enneagram is an ancient psychological model which analyses personality types, ego structures and behaviours. It will look at nine ego-fixations which can create suffering in our daily lives and it offers ‘antidotes’ which can counteract the tendency to follow these ego-habits. It proves to be very useful for our work as actors investigating human nature and for our own personal development.

WISDOM & COMPASSION WEEKEND WORKSHOP Sat 15 – Sun 16 March (10AM – 5PM)

The section on wisdom will focus on spiritual practices that are designed to create an open and expanded mind. The section on Compassion will focus on practices that are designed to open the heart centre to the ‘service of others’. Both sets of practices help us to find true happiness in our lives.

WHERE: 82 Twilight St, Kenmore

COST: THE ENNEAGRAM WEEKEND WORKSHOP: $200
WISDOM & COMPASSION WORKSHOP: $100/DAY OR $175 WEEKEND
