Punchdrunk are the acknowledged pioneers of a new form of immersive theatre in which roaming audiences experience epic storytelling inside deeply atmospheric, theatrical worlds. Blending classic texts, award-winning design installation and extraordinary sites, the company’s infectious format transports the viewer from the passive familiarity of conventional theatre to a state of activated imagination.
