The Crash of The Elysium

Punchdrunk
1-17 July 2011
World premiere  1 July 2011

What would you do if Doctor Who gave you 60 minutes to save the world? That was the premise of Punchdrunk’s The Crash of The Elysium, which saw the ground-breaking immersive theatre company back at MIF in an adrenalin-filled adventure that put 6- to 12-year-olds firmly at the centre of the intergalactic action. A site-specific co-commission with the Doctor Who team, Crash was emotionally involving and physically challenging – and there were no sofas behind which to hide. The show attracted some of the bravest and most receptive audiences in MIF’s history – and when the real Time Lord, Matt Smith, appeared in person to 30 very lucky visitors at the end of the run, the roof of the control room very nearly blew away.

‘An exhilarating adventure’ The Guardian


On tour
