Zombie: Red Zone
OK, we won’t lie to you Christchurch – we’re big fans of The Walking Dead TV series here and as such are pretty excited by the prospect of dodging the undead in the CBD at Project Z’s Zombie: Red Zone next month.
A smash-hit sellout in Auckland last year (under its original title, Apocalypse Z), Zombie: Red Zone yanks theatre audiences out of their comfy seats and sav blanc sippin’ ways, throwing them into the middle of a global zombie pandemic. Quarantined within a specially-built, site-specific military zone where all hell is breaking loose puts the audience at the centre of the experience. There’s no taking things in passively here – audiences must overcome challenges and grapple with their own humanity in the midst of a plague of the undead and their gnarly chattering teeth.
Brainchild (mmm, braaaaaains) of David Van Horn (Sione’s Wedding, Avatar) and former Christchurch...
