imitating the dog has been making theatre work fusing live performance with digital technology and projection for 21 years.

Their past productions have included original devised work as well as adaptations from other forms, such as A Farewell to Arms and Heart of Darkness.

Their new show, Night of The Living Dead™ – Remix, is being co-produced with Leeds Playhouse. It’s described as a ‘shot-for-shot stage recreation’ of George A Romero’s classic 1968 zombie movie Night of the Living Dead.

Mark Smith spoke to co-director Andrew Quick and performer Morven Macbeth, taking time out from rehearsals to discuss the show and the company’s work in general. Morven is one of the actors in Night of The Living Dead™ - Remix and a regular core member of imitating the dog. She has been working with the company since 2005, and most recently appeared in Heart of Darkness.

  • Perfection? We will never achieve it, because it’s impossible. But that’s part of the game.
  • The energy comes from the attempt.
