So..the story continues even further.
This is Hoxton Hall.
Hoxton Hall is an old Music Hall. This is where Flatmates V Zombies is going to appear next. It has 200 seats. That's an amazing thing. It was built in 1863 and is, as you can see - gorgeous. The thought of 200 people coming to see a new musical, (not an adaptation #proud) is enough to make you dizzy. A project, 3 years in the making. A project where two creative teams get creative together, collaborating over 6,500 miles of separation and somehow succeed! This is a great thing. In the Autumn of 2017 we are going to have the biggest scratch performance to date. New songs, new music. You will see the closest thing to a full run, before we really get doing in 2018.
The Story so Far…
You come into this story after three years of work. Not constantly. We can’t. None of the team is has independent means, however what you see is three years of chipping away at a project we love and all believe in
In Feb 2013, Hyun Ju Baek a student on the Goldsmiths MA in Musical theatre sat next to a writer, Christopher Hogg in a class called ‘ Social and Cultural Analysis of the Musical’. They decided to try and write a musical of Hyun Ju’s experience of being a stranger in London. 6 months later, there was a 45 minutes show, called ‘Flatmates V Zombies’. It premiered at the Camden Fringe, and had a short but successful run at the Tristan Bates Theatre as part of Goldmiths' annual festival of new musicals. Neither of the two composers, Julia Sukan and Michael Neo had written musicals before, but together they penned 6 good musical numbers, three of which have made it into the new show.
Since that time, the creative team has been joined by Korean composer Hwal Ran Min and a UK by Reggae producer Dan Donovan (Ex Big Audio Dynamite).
On the production side, the UK team has been strengthened bysage talents of Richard Shannon, a musical lecturer at Goldsmiths, as well as Won and Ginny Kim. Both successful producers in Korea.
