Seven members of ZU get official Globe training

Chu instructing Luis

Seven members of Zero Untitled received acting training from the Globe Theatre (Shakespeare’s primary performance space) on May 21 in London, England.  Under the teachings of Chu Owambala, the group received training in acting, mimesis, improvisational exercises, and script study.


ZU members who received training are the following (name following recent productions):

Samantha Garcia (Acoustical, Broken Wheels)

Rebecca Lopez (Relapse in Wonderland, Textual Overture)

Julio Martinez (Textual Overture, Premature Punchline writer)

Katherine Orozco (Acoustical,  Forward MIMEntum)

David Sabrio (The Rape of Lucrece, All the World’s a Stage)

Michael Verderber (Fate of Eights, Shattered)

Luis Zaragosa (Welcome Freshmen, Fate of Eights)


Mimes’ European Vacation

Those dirty mimes did it…again.  This time in London.  Tawd, Harvey, and Wren harassed (albeit silently) the residents of London on May 25th.  This production marks the second European show ZU has done (both were in the same week).  The other production was “All the World’s a Stage” (see below).

See the full show page for more images and details.

“All the World’s a Stage” proven true

Staging a production in 3 different countries at the same time is difficult, no matter what kind of crew you have working.  Variables arise left and right.  Zero Untitled’s 3-country production “All the World’s a Stage” managed to be performed in 2 of the 3 countries scheduled.

Team London performed at Norfolk Square near Padington Square in the heart of London. Pictured is Rebecca Lopez performing the Jacques speech from “As You Like It” which was the monologue that started started both productions (USA & England).  In the background is the cast of “The Phoenix and Turtle.”

 With the production, ZU has officially reached other shores and has performed internationally.

Multiple-Country performance scheduled – “All the World’s a Stage”

ZU’s latest and arguably most ambitious project yet, “All The World’s a Stage” is currently in the rehearsal project.  ZU will be performing a movement-piece adaptation to Shakespeare’s “The Phoenix and Turtle” poem as well as several select monologues in 3 different countries all on the same day and at the same time.  Three ZU teams will head the project.

On May 15, Team Korea and Team England will arrive in their respective countries and will need a few days of rehearsal before the production.

At 10 am in Texas, at 5 pm in London, England, and at 1 am in south Korea, members of ZU will be performing the pieces to underscore the timeless and universal quality of theatre and Shakespeare.

Performance date is currently TBA, but tentatively aiming for May 20th (USA).  For those stateside, the Texas performance will occur at Cafe 5 in Kingsville, TX (where our “Textual Overture” program frequents).

“Acoustical” wrapped, pictures up

Zero Untitled celebrated its 60th production, “Acoustical“, a comedy of about life, women, music, and finding love. Show info and pictures are on the official show page!
