"It's about a heightened state of awareness," says Felix Barrett, Founder and Director of Punchdrunk, about groundbreaking productions like Sleep No More and The Drowned Man. Punchdrunk productions transform existing architectural spaces into interactive theater pieces in order to disrupt the traditional, formulaic, and passive theater model. Instead, a sense of mystery is created by getting the audience to physically move through a space and interact with it. The audience becomes a part of the setting and the show itself. By challenging the established audience and performer boundaries, Punchdrunk pushes audiences out of their comfort zone to have a more intense live experience.
