High Street Casualties: Ellie Harrison's Zombie Walk

EVENT: Birmingham City Centre
Saturday 11 April 2015

28 April - 30 May 2015

A new performance / event by Ellie Harrison in collaboration with Ort Gallery. High Street Casualties brings to life the 'creative destructive' forces of capitalism on Birmingham's busy shopping streets.

Dressed in the torn and faded uniforms of Woolworths, MFI, Borders, JJB Sports, Blockbuster, Phones 4U and more, an army of over sixty 'zombie employees' make their way from the former sites of these now defunct businesses, through the City Centre, before amassing and descending on Ort Gallery at dusk for a Zombie Ball.
