Zoom is a contemporary improvisation format developed in Australia by Jason Geary that celebrates language and rhythm in a way that creates a truly unique style of theatre. Often described as Birdman for the stage mixed with Murakami-style narration, Zoom has transfixed audiences all over the world. This original format has been performed in Amsterdam, Hamburg, Canberra, Wellington, Reunion Island and now for the first time - New York.
All we need is two improvisers, one drummer, an empty stage - and you. Zoom will be performed by Adrian Burke and Addie Weyrich.
