KIWI ZOMBIE OUTBREAK IN EDINBURGH!
The Generation of Z is set to unleash it's immersive
virus at the world's largest arts festival and to achieve this
theatrical pandemic... We need your help!
Following the successes of Apocalypse Z -
Auckland 2013 - and Zombie: Red Zone -
Christchurch 2014 - we have partnered with The Assembly to present
our show at the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
The Generation of Z is immersive, site-specific
theatre at its most intense. Taking its cue from films such as
28 Days Later and video games like The
Last of Us, our production is a fully immersive
experience, designed to blur the lines between audience and
performer like never before. Set within a fallen military facility,
our audience undergo a multi-sensory bombardment of parallel
storylines, live gunfire, explosions and CCTV footage, all as a
horde of the undead close in.
Taking this idea to Edinburgh has been a dream of ours since
it's conception. Now that opportunity is here. And we want to blow
HOW YOU CAN HELP
This show is quite literally a monster. It requires a
monumental amount of technical equipment, production design and a
team that's prepared to go to the wall and beyond.
Your support and donations are critical to its success. We've
been fortunate enough to receive financial support from Creative
New Zealand towards travel costs. But unlike most touring companies
we can't just arrive in Edinburgh with a finished product: we'll
need to build our set entirely in a site specific location,
rehearse into the space, incorporate local performers and prerecord
This is a real opportunity to hit Edinburgh with a world
class innovative production from New Zealand that will make a
terrifying impression. Help make it happen!

We forever continue to be utterly thrilled by how much generosity keeps flying our way. We never foresaw this sort of momentum, and this target - this dream - is becoming more and more realistic. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
It's all go here at the GenZ headquarters - one of our team today met with Assembly (our venue in Edinburgh) to talk through the logistics of our space. AND WHAT A SPACE! Very excited to be working with the Assembly team, and can't wait to see what we create there.

We are blown away, overwhelmed and humbled by the incredible support that's flown our way over the past 48 hours - you guys are AMAZING!
Furthermore, The Generation of Z is attracting some pretty major attention further abroad... After having been recommended by THE GUARDIAN as a "hot ticket" for this year's fringe, we were then listed by THE TIMES as one of the festival's top 40 BEST SHOWS!
This is going to go off!
