Live Live Cinema: Night of the Living Dead

Co-produced with Auckland Arts Festival, in association with Jumpboard Productions.
Created and Composed by Leon Radojkovic.

It’s George Romero’s 1968 cult classic like you’ve never experienced before: immaculately choreographed and made live. In this heart-pounding collision of cinema, theatre and music, Romero’s film is accompanied by two performers racing across the stage to voice every character and create every sound effect, while playing an original score composed by Leon Radojkovic (Live Live Cinema’s Little Shop of Horrors, Dementia 13 and Carnival of Souls)

Hailed by critics as a manifesto for the modern horror, Live Live Cinema: Night of the Living Dead sees a group of strangers trapped in a farmhouse, fending off a horde of flesh-eating zombies. An allegory for America in the 60s with enduring relevance today — a society eating itself from within — this unlikely revival takes you deep into the belly of the beast for an exhilarating theatrical experience.

Starring the unstoppable triple threats, Hayley Sproull (TVNZ’s Have You Been Paying Attention?, Little Shop Of Horrors) and Jack Buchanan (When Sun and Moon Collide, Homos, or, Everyone In America) directed by Silo’s Artistic Director Sophie Roberts, LIVE LIVE CINEMA: NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD is set to be an unmissable new show from Silo Theatre and Jumpboard Productions.

Join us at the iconic Hollywood in Avondale for a performance feat that truly has to be seen to be believed.

On for a strictly limited season.
