An exhilarating new production is coming to Auckland this September, bringing together cinema, theatre and music like never before.
Collaborating with Jumpboard Productions, Live Live Cinema: Night of the Living Dead will see the cult classic 1968 film transformed into a daring live performance. As the film plays silently, all the dialogue and sound effects will be recreated by two actors live on stage.
Hayley Sproull and Jack Buchanan take on the tremendous task of voicing all but one of the characters, creating all the sound effects and playing a new original score by Live Live Cinema creator and composer Leon Radojkovic.
The show concept has been a cult-hit with past productions of Little Shop of Horrors, Carnival of Souls and Dementia 13, wowing audiences with its ambitious live soundscapes and inventive twists on the cinema experience.
“Leon has an amazing talent for reimagining cinematic gems and creating new layers of meaning for how audiences interpret them,” says director Sophie Roberts. “I’m really looking forward to the unique performance challenges of this show, as it’s always thrilling to watch performers achieving that virtuosity that can come by attempting the impossible.”
Live Live Cinema: Night of the Living Dead runs from 9-18 September at the Hollywood Avondale cinema.
Tickets available on Eventfinda.
