Vikram and the Vampire marks the beginning of Michael Futcher and Helen Howard’s directorship of Zen Zen Zo’s Performance Company. Adapted from the award-winning production of The King and the Corpse, Vikram and the Vampire is a magical night of comedy, horror and dynamic physical theatre which celebrates the art of storytelling and ensemble playing.

“The actors perform everything – people, spirits, gods, animals, even scenery and props – changing their states smoothly in a wondrous theatrical alchemy” Brisbane News Devised from a series of fantastical Hindu tales, Vikram and the Vampire traces the dramatic and hilarious odyssey of proud King Vikram as he attempts to retrieve a vampire from a tree, past the spirits of the people he has executed, to deliver to the evil sorcerer, Shantil.  Along the way the vampire tries to distract King Vikram by telling stories which come to life around them, and soon Vikram discovers that the greatest terrors are not from the spirits who surround him, but from within his own mind… 

The exciting cast includes Sandro Colarelli, Lizzie Ballinger, Bryan Probets, Liz Buchanan, Lauren Jackson, Alex Forero, Chris Beckey, Earl Kim, Jamie Kendall and Mel Budd. Directed by Michael Futcher.
