UK-based Punchdrunk are the world’s leading practitioners of immersive theatre. Their 2007 hit Masque of the Red Death at Battersea Arts Centre took London by storm, and the company are currently performing in New York with their sell-out show Sleep No More. Over two days at The Ark, Punchdrunk Enrichment, the company’s ground breaking outreach and development programme will deliver a professional development workshop for theatre practitioners and a professional development workshop for primary school teachers at The Ark. The company will also take part in an evening discussion in The Ark’s theatre led by Dublin City Arts Officer Ray Yeates. These events are an international collaboration with European partner Punchdrunk Theatre UK, Local Authority Arts Office Dublin City Council, and local cultural organisations The Ark and Louise Lowe ANU Productions.
