Theatre Alberta is thrilled to announce that punchdrunk, one of the UK’s most innovative theatre companies, will make its first trip to Canada this summer to lead a featured professional master class at Dramaworks in July 2012.
Combining traditional theatrical texts with innovative technology, punchdrunk is a pioneer in immersive theatre: they encourage audiences to participate wholly in the world of the play rather than simply present it to them.
Facilitating this exciting master class will be Maxine Doyle, punchdrunk’s co-artistic director and choreographer of their first North American hit, Sleep No More – a Film Noir reimagining of Shakespeare’s MacBeth – which is currently enjoying an extended run in New York. Ms. Doyle and an additional member of the punchdrunk creative team will lead participants through a challenging workshop based upon creating what the New York Times calls, “theatre for the interactive age.”
Theatre Alberta’s Dramaworks will be held from July 4 to 8, 2012, in and around the University of Alberta in Edmonton. Further workshop information and applications will be available in March on our website.
