About Time: You Discovered New Immersive Experience, Rumble in the JungleBy Alicia Grimshaw
Calling sports fans, theatre enthusiasts and those who love new and exciting events: Rematch has announced its second immersive experience – ‘Rumble in the Jungle’ – a nostalgic and immersive live theatre experience in central London.
Almost 50 years later, Rematch is giving everyone a second chance to experience the magic of Rumble in the Jungle thanks to a brand new and world-class re-imagining of Muhammad Ali’s and George Foreman’s iconic fight.
Rumble in the Jungle: The Lowdown
Transforming central London’s Seymour Hall into a reimagined 1974 Kinshasa, Rumble in the Jungle will create an action-packed experience, brought to life by music, culture, fashion and tastes that surrounded the iconic fight and saw an underdog Ali fight for the world heavyweight title that had been stripped from him a decade earlier for refusing the Vietnam draft. The fight cemented him as the second dethroned champion in history.
Rematch will captivate its audience to tell the story of what is widely regarded as ‘The Greatest Sporting Event’ of the 20th century. More than a boxing match, the ripple effects of Rumble in the Jungle were felt wider culturally as a story of positive change, new beginnings, and banishing stereotypes whilst pushing limits emerged.
Rumble in the Jungle Rematch is a celebration of this cultural landmark in history, and will bring to life the historical event as a multi-sensory experience with incredible interactive elements; from actors to archive footage, memorabilia and more.
