Punchdrunk has pioneered a game-changing form of immersive theatre since the year 2000, in which roaming audiences experience epic and emotional storytelling inside sensory theatrical worlds. They focus as much on the audience and the performance space as on the performers and narrative. Punchdrunk's designers occupy deserted buildings and apply a cinematic level of details to immersive the audience in the world of the show.
Now, PunchDrunk the theater company that created the insanely popular SLEEP NO MORE, has teamed up with the MIT Media Lab to create a unique type of immersive teleperformance in conjunction with the New York production of their popular theatrical experience. This project pairs online participants with members of the live audience during performances to actively experience a unique version of the show through a variety of media.
Watch as Peter Higgin and Colin Nightingale present these innovative projects.
