LipZinc Theatre Company was conceived through a need to make work that is truthful to the artist and vital to the audience. 'Lip' meaning the opening of the mouth, where words and feelings escape and let loose; 'Zinc' meaning the essential element to the body that we cannot live without. Founded in 2016 by Tzarini Meyler the company puts the unheard characters of this world centre stage, to tell the tales untold. Whilst beginning with a script we change and move with the flow of the performers, physicality being a major aspect of our work. Our shows are visually engaging - juxtaposing glamour with grime, rural with industrial and past with present. Working with visual and sound artists, our shows are a sensory experience. Life is never only one thing - we want our shows to find the sadness in beauty, and the joy in disorder. LipZinc was born kicking and screaming and she's here to stay.
