  • Punchdrunk: A Game Changing Form of Theatre
    Punchdrunk: A Game Changing Form of TheatrePunchdrunk came about from a desire to put audiences at the heart of the action. I had been involved in plenty of traditional theatre productions and I began to feel that there was something too passive about the experience people had when watching conventional theatre. I wanted to change that, to jolt audiences into a more engaged reaction - that is how the idea started.
