The Wayfaring Zombie will be coming soon to the BAX/Brooklyn Arts Exchange on October 26th and 27, 2012.
In The Wayfaring Zombie, we follow a man unjustly shot down in the prime of his life, who is relentlessly tortured by his past and sentenced through unthinkable circumstances to return from the grave. Through various episodes we see The Zombie react to dangerous situations and take matters into his own hands. Our Antihero is a Zombie with a heart destined to wander the world, saving the weak and wronged with no sure path back to his final resting place. The Wayfaring Zombie is a visually dramatic performance which incorporates a live band, Foley artists and video projection. Check out some of the Kevin White’s work at http://nycstringpuller.com.
