ZU.UK is an established award winning independent theatre company based in East London and Rio de Janeiro since 2001. As a British company that has successfully maintained a satellite base in Brazil for over a decade, ZU has a strong track record of collaborating across cultures and artistic disciplines, delivering ambitious innovation with depth and integrity.
Our celebrated DRIFT methodology was created by the joint artistic directors in 2006 and spans 15 residencies in over 10 countries. Interactive exhibition HUMBLE MARKET was commissioned by LONDON2012, FACT Liverpool and presented by Brazilian Ministry of Culture World Cup Programme in 2014. The overnight immersive HOTEL MEDEA was the number 1 hit of Edinburgh 2011, won numerous awards, and was presented at both Hayward Gallery and LIFT2010.
ZU-UK believes in the transformative power of the human experience. As the world becomes more globalised we are increasingly losing the rituals and rites that bind us in worthwhile communion and we set out to purposefully give people tailor made experiences that connect us with who we are and the essential desire to connect meaningfully.
