Reading Zombies: Undead at The Y

Date - Monday, 30th September, 2013
Time - 7pm
Price - 7/5 conc

Poet and Performer Lydia Towsey presents, Reading Zombies - a moaning, clawing, shuffling work - with zombie cats, gruesome goddesses and undead zombie make-up.

From Beatrix Potter to Botticelli’s Venus...from cosmetic surgery to the current recession - how might zombies reveal themselves in contemporary culture, art and literature - and what parallels might be drawn between us and them?

Featuring live looping and vocals from Ola Szmidt; David Dhonau on cello; original art work by Scott Bridgwood and film visuals from Keith Allott - this brand new show will rip apart the zombie matter and pick the brains of audience members. With zombie cup cakes, quizzes and reading lists - and on hand to support the evening.

No undead experience necessary. Optional zombie dress code - wear black.

This event is part of Everybody’s Reading, Leicester’s unique festival of words with over 100 poetry, spoken word, film, lectures, family fun, workshops, storytelling, performance and arts events taking place across the city in 50 venues between September 28th – October 6th. Find out more at
