Undead in the Night, Jillian Mcdonald

Undead in the Night May 28 - 30, 9pm to 1am.
Malmö, Sweden
*Already sold out!*

The performance Undead in the Night is a collaboration between Jillian Mcdonald (New York) and Lilith Performance Studio in Malmö, Sweden that involves over 100 actors, out in the forest in the middle of the night. The artist places two undead creatures (hideous Zombies and stunning Vampires) in the same scenes with their victims, violating the codes and boundaries of the horror genre, and creating an impossible scenario. The observer becomes a visitor in a living horror movie. Starting at twilight a bus transfers the audience 8 people at a time to an undisclosed forest location. Following a path in the dark various scenes come alive along a 3 km long horror path.
