Zombie Science – Worst Case Scenario review: Brighton-Sci Fest

Brighton Science Festival: Sunday 10 February

Zombie Science - Worst Case ScenarioThink the living dead, and you think gore-filled video nasties. Brighton Sci-Fest’s headlining event, Zombie Science – Worst Case Scenario, is none of this and is decidedly family friendly! Theoretical ‘Zombiologist’ Doctor Austin gives audiences a layman’s essential guide: how to deal with a zombie outbreak.

A tongue-in-cheek performance, Dr Austin teaches spectators ‘essential’ zombie-science: how an infection spreads, the genetic theory behind zombie-reanimation and hopes for future gene therapy cures. Using the zombie outbreak as the basis of discussion, this expert guide teaches the audience how to identify, contain and potentially eradicate the ‘disease’. With an abundance of crowd participation, spectators deliberate and decide what action they would take (to run or to hide?), and Dr Austin delivers witty and novel solutions for both adults and children to survive this impending fictional threat.

A hilarious, insightful show – that even manages some real-life relevance – is an absolute must for would-be-survivors young and old.

The Brighton Science Festival runs 6 Feb – 3rd March. See all forthcoming events here. Stay tuned for more reviews and interviews.
