Watch Derry uni students' spooky Halloween flash mob
and live on Freeview channel 276
The Zombie Flash Mob kicked off the University celebrations of Halloween with two nights of an immersive Halloween horror experience in Foyle Arts Centre; the Universities oldest building. The work has been conceived and developed by the students across the UU Drama program supported by Dr. Adrian O'Connell.
Dr O’Connell said: “As a program based in the City, Halloween gives us an amazing opportunity for the students to let their imaginations run wild and present a fun, exhilarating and immersive performance. We are excited to work with external partners in Derry City and Strabane District Council (DCSDC) and take a central role in the Halloween celebrations. UU School of Arts & Humanities are based in the heart of the city and have so much talent within our program and within the school. We have been working in partnership Derry City and Strabane District Council for the past few years, prior to covid, and have been increasing our output for the City Halloween Celebrations over that period of time.
“The flash mob is tied to their modules in Performance Technologies, Acting, and Space and Performance and gives them practical working experience in creating public events in a short space of time. They have been working on the entire project for three weeks and the flash mob is really a welcome event, a pre-amble to the main event in Foyle Arts Building.”
