Michael Zandl



FOOD  (working title) will be an engaging circus performance that explores the effects of human consumption on our environment and society. 

FOOD  marks the fourth full-length circus creation by Michael Zandl and is the second show as a ‘House Maker’ with Korzo Theater. For this performance, Michael will be stepping off the stage to make his directorial debut.

The performance will feature a collective of four circus artists who will explore the theme of relentless human consumption and its profound effects on our environment and society. This exploration will be brought to life through a  blend of disciplines, including object manipulation, acrobatics, and illusion theater, all woven together with physical storytelling.FOOD promises to be a fresh and captivating circus performance, engaging audiences with its unique mixture of artistic elements and a subtle sense of humor.
