The Crash of The Elysium

The Crash of The Elysium

What would you do if Doctor Who gave you 60 minutes to save the world? That was the premise of Punchdrunks The Crash of The Elysium, which saw the groundbreaking immersive theatre company back at MIF, this time in an adrenalin-filled adventure that put audiences 6-12 years old firmly at the centre of the inter-galactic action.

A site specific co-commission with the Doctor Who team, Crash was emotionally challenging - and there were no sofas to hide behind. Crash attracted some of the bravest and most receptive audiences MIF has ever seen, and when the real Time Lord, Matt Smith, appeared in person to 30 very lucky audience members at the end of the run, the roof in the control room nearly blew away.

'An exhilarating adventure.'

Commissioned by Manchester International Festival, BBC, London 2012 Festival and Salford City Council.

Produced by Manchester International Festival, Punchdrunk and BBC Wales.

Funded by the National Lottery through the Olympic Lottery Distributor.

New Wolsey Theatre, IPSWICH
