Last week the guys from The Generation of Z: Apocalypse took their 20 zombies from the theater show around the streets of London and here are the pictures.
The zombies have been designed by Hollywood make-up artist Kristyan Mallett for the show and as you can see they look amazing. The zombies broke away from their usual day of scaring people in East London to do some sightseeing.
They travelled by tube and bus to visit The London Eye, Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge, Big Ben and Westminster to pull some frights on the unsuspecting public.
They also took over some wedding photos with a couple near Buckingham Palace. Throughout the afternoon the show offered free tickets to anyone who was brave enough to get a ‘Zelfie’ with the zombies around London.
The Generation of Z: Apocalypse is described as “an adrenaline-churning assault of a show” by The Scotsman, this is immersive theatre unlike anything you have ever experienced before. Audiences are hurled into the maelstrom of a zombie apocalypse, where the unique story unfolds around them in real time. Through the electrifying 75 minute show the fate of our audience lies in their hands, where every choice they make can mean life or death for themselves… and for the rest of mankind.
The world of The Generation of Z: Apocalypse unfolds within a purpose-built, labyrinthian venue in Dept W on Mile End Road in Whitechapel. The former Wickhams department store is an iconic building in the heart of East London, with its basement spanning over 25,000 square feet. It is here that audiences must attempt to navigate their way through our apocalyptic wasteland.
Not for the faint hearted, The Generation of Z: Apocalypse throws you into your very own action movie, where there is no fourth wall and no interval.
Show Producers Beth Allen and Charlie McDermott say, “We are creating theatre for a new generation, giving our audiences an experience and not just a performance. With film-quality production design, a heart-stopping narrative and opportunities for audiences to affect the story’s outcome, this show will be like nothing anyone has experienced before.”
With Executive Producer William Burdett-Coutts commenting, “This production started in New Zealand, came to Edinburgh where it was one of the fastest sellouts ever and we are delighted to be bringing it to London. This does something special in terms of appealing to both a traditional and non-traditional theatre audience and in terms of generating interest in live work is one of the most incredible things I have ever seen.”
