Punchdrunk International and co-producers SMG Live today announced the extension of their production of SLEEP NO MORE, which opened to great acclaim on 14th December. Over 30,000 tickets have now been sold for the production, with every performance playing to sell out audiences. Booking is now open until 31st May 2017.
Punchdrunk International’s visceral, tactile and darkly cinematic telling of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy, Macbeth, spans five floors of a vast, specially constructed building in the Jing’An district of the city. This is the first immersive work of this scale to be performed in China.
Punchdrunk have presented their ground-breaking immersive theatre work around the globe for over 15 years. To create this new production, they have collaborated with Chinese co-producers SMG Live and Chinese artists. The original creative teams have been working in China with their local counterparts for several months creating a unique production that shows the world of 1930s Shanghai in sumptuous cinematic detail.
