TOAST is a Physical Theatre performance presented by Zen Zen Zo NZ, devised from scratch to explore our celebratory and problematic relationship with food and bodies.
TOAST touches on themes of ritual, shame, expectation and diversity. The hour long piece, divided into 3 acts: ‘Eat Toast’ ‘We’re Toast’ and ‘A Toast’ is presented as a degustation of bite-sized vignettes with elements of humour, beauty and the grotesque.
TOAST will take the audience on a relatable journey created from the words of the people, researched during lock-down. Devised, directed and produced by a team of physical theatre obsessed performers, this multi-disciplinary, innovative work crosses boundaries between contemporary theatre and dance (inspired by the Butoh tradition), melded together with a strong visual aesthetic.
We’re right in the middle of the Terrace… Find Oxford lane (between Terrace Tavern and Amazonita), then go up the stairs behind Little Fiddle, or go up the elevator between Bangalore Polo Club and Amazonita. You can also access it from Shands Lane. Once you’re up the stairs, look for the Little Andromeda sandwich board, or our windows which have Little Andromeda written all over them!
It’s about a block from the bus exchange, and if you are bringing your car then there is a brand new carpark next door; type 92 Hereford Street into your GPS!
