SWING TAP AND HONKS FROM AUSTRALIA AND GREECE, BASED IN BERLIN

About

Bio 1
Zap is a 5 piece wonder trap raised on the streets of Berlin.
Beginning with a shared love of swing, smiles and the absurd the group has coalesced to become an edge of seat surprise factory brimming with the exotic.
Expect tap dancing, confetti, puppets and small rubber animals that make a variety of noises combined with Australian swing jazz outlining the more humorous sides of the truth.


As the onomatopoeic name suggests, you can expect some electric and shocking phenomena, as well as some Frank Zappa look a-likes.

Bio 2

Zap is a whirlwind of old school jazz, tap dancing, puppetry, squeaking toys and confetti. Be prepared to have your smile stretched and your worries wrecked!


Bio 3

Zap blossomed in the artistic playground of Berlin when two Australians and one Greek combined ideological forces. Together they animate lives and cause happiness earthquakes with their rambunctious show full of bogan swing, raucous puppetry, extremely physical theatre, tenacious tap dance moves and cymbal splashing comedy.


Bio 4

What do you get when you throw a washboard, mini megaphone, ukulele, rubber chicken, some tap shoes, a trumpet, 2 kangaroos and some tzatziki into a blender?
Zap grew in the artistic playground of Berlin, blossoming from a craigslist add for swing music lovers, some special feelings and generally nice times.
Drawing inspiration from Bob Fosse, Louis Prima, skiffle music and ancient laundry practices, Zap creates much more than just tunes that get your feet and vocal chords loose... It's gonna be a wild physical show to lighten your load and bubble your bath!
