" Audiences today want a genuine experience within their live performance, because they can receive great software based entertainment at home, through various new media sources. Traditional theater, which is of interest on a mental, and ideally also mental level, is not enough to compete with other media, and audiences have already been declining. Physical theatre, by contrast appeals to the group on a emotional and physical level, providing a much more instant experience than traditional theatreвЂќ ~ (Artmedia Publishing in Zen Yoga Zo's " The TempestвЂќ Teacher's Notes)
" вЂ¦Then you realise that theatre is a more personal knowledge. вЂќ (Stephen Atkins, Dante's Inferno Director) After observing Zen Yoga Zo's physical theatre reincarnation of the philosophical poem, Dolore by Dante Alighieri, it had been clear which the combinations of various dramatic dialects ultimately improved both the mood and symbolism of this live concert. These dramatic languages are the utilisation and management of physical make up, complicitГ©, space, language and movement remarkable languages to develop and improve both disposition and mark.
This kind of performance well guided the audience throughout the literature to experience the different phases of purgatory performed on the Old Art gallery. This successfully provided the audience as well as the cast with intimate theater experiences.
