ZAP and National Art School – Arts Monday
Musician, Will Henderson and Curator, Judith Blackall are my guests today. Will Henderson, a graduate of the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, is currently touring Australia with The ZAP Show – a unique, wild and fun laden show full of puppetry, physical theatre, dance and comedy.
The Zap Show originated in Berlin when two Australians and one Greek (Will, Gabrielle and Petros) combined ideological forces. ZAP constantly performs across Europe, wowing audiences with their phenomenal music and their passionate performances.
ZAP launch their EP at The Basement on 6TH February 2016.
