Punchdrunk’s “The Drowned Man: A Hollywood Fable”

(Community Matters) Ultimate site specific theatre. Most of us know the Punchdrunk theatre company for their NYC production Sleep No More. Steven and I  stumbled onto them  ten+ years ago. They’ve just announced their next production, this one in collaboration with the National Theatre. Highly, highly, highly recommend it – and I’ve not even read it or spoken with them about it, nevertheless . . .

Step into the world of Temple Pictures where the Hollywood studio system meets a forgotten hinterland filled with dreamers who exist at the fringes of the movie industry. Here, celluloid fantasy clings to desperate realism and certainty dissolves into a hallucinatory world.

Inspired by Büchner’s fractured masterpiece Woyzeck, this theatrical journey follows its protagonists along the precipice between illusion and reality.
