Image of Punch Drunk DVD and Contextualising Pack


Against a backdrop of decaying theatrical grandeur, Punch Drunk finds six extraordinary performers moving like ghosts through a disused theatre. Slipping in and out of half-remembered acts, they piece together the tatters of a show long since past its prime. Emotionally raw and darkly humorous, Punch Drunk is an enthralling journey into the world of vaudeville and burlesque. Created in 2004 in celebration of Vincent Dance Theatre’s tenth anniversary.

Printed contextualising pack that includes information on the devising and making process of the show, directorial notes and sketches and thoughts from the performers.

'Characters such as these are theatrical gold dust, tugging at the heartstrings with their unrequited enthusiasm.’ The Scotsman
