About: Zenzi Zenzi: The Pursuit

Created By: Adam Marvel

Director: Ron East – Director and Principal Instructor, The School of Physical Theatre

Designer: Isabel Muñoz-Newsome

Cast: Jo Marvel

“Zenzi Zenzi: The Pursuit” is a new physical theatre piece by Adam Marvel, which explores two overlapping stories of possibility. The stories are told in vivid colours, pulsing with opportunity and exclamation.

“Zenzi Zenzi” is a play focused on relationships; a play focused on the rapid changes that can push internal and external trust to the very limits; a play in which five characters strive- individually and collectively- for commitment and passion.

Robert Smallwood (RSC and Shakespeare Centre) has said, “[Adam Marvel's] performance is comedic genius with touches of pathos and anger.” A full-blown sensory experience, “Zenzi Zenzi” sends you out of the theatre ready to pounce on life!

“Zenzi Zenzi: The Pursuit” has been sponsored by Theatreworks Development, endeavoring to offer young international physical theatre practitioners an entry into the London theatre scene.
