Zombies in Condoland

on September 21, 2008 - 9:45pm


At sundown on October 4th, a Toronto condominium construction site is being taken over by zombies. And you can be a part of it.

Modern zombies are mindless monsters who are undead: neither dead nor alive. They travel in groups, hungry for humans. People who are bitten are infected and transformed into zombies themselves. Because they are dead, zombies look terrible, and usually move slowly and awkwardly. They are incapable of communication, and have no individual personalities. Zombies are metaphorically associated with the working class and consumers.

Condos are apartments, some luxurious, which are rising in popularity in major North American cities. Some can be found in convenient clusters, often in areas which artists and other less wealthy groups have helped to establish as safe and/or hip. People who can afford the expensive housing units are flocking to condos in droves, like zombies.

Zombies in Condoland is happening in College Park as part of Nuit Blanche, an annual art event that takes over the city from sunset to sunrise.

If you don't have make-up, don't worry: they will rotten you up when you get there. Filming will take place at The Aura. See the official blog for more details.
