Night of the Living Dead Remix
17 Apr 2020 - 17 Jul 2020
Presented by imitating the dog and Leeds Playhouse.
A shot-for-shot stage recreation of the classic horror film Night of the Living Dead.
“They’re coming to get you Barbara”
In 1968, Night of the Living Dead started out as a low-budget independent horror movie telling the story of seven strangers taking refuge from flesh eating ghouls in an isolated farmhouse.
Fifty years on, seven performers enter the stage armed with cameras, a box of props and a rail of costumes. Can they recreate the ground-breaking film, shot-for-shot before our eyes, using whatever they can lay their hands on?
With 1,076 camera edits to re-enact in 95 minutes it’s a heroic struggle. Success requires wit, skill and ingenuity, what could possibly go wrong?
In their new stage production, masters- of - digital theatre, imitating the dog, create a love-song to the original 1960s film, a remaking and remixing which attempts to understand the past in order not to have to repeat it. Their version is in turns humorous, terrifying, thrilling, thought-provoking and joyous. Above all, in the retelling it becomes a searing parable for our own complex times.
