In recent years ZOO Venues has welcomed hundreds of companies from all over the UK and abroad - their performances ranging from classic theatre to breakdancing, ballet, stand-up comedy, cabaret, physical theatre, trapeze work, magic, contemporary dance, children's theatre, new writing, multimedia fusions, jazz, blues and soul.
Our aim has always been to achieve a balance of hot new talent and established Fringe favourites, with acts representing every possible genre and discipline.
In our Main House at ZOO Southside we look to programme outstanding dance and physical theatre. Elsewhere our studio theatre spaces provide the ideal setting for cutting edge new writing, children's shows and the strongest classics, while our cabaret bar makes the perfect venue for comedy and music.
We are as flexible as possible during programming and aim to create a blend of shows that both complement and contrast each other - strongly encouraging audience crossover between the different elements of our bill.
Applications from companies are accepted from November onwards, we programme our shows during the January-March period.
