The Burnt City
Creative Coordinator Arlo Howard
GODS AND MORTALS RISE FOR A PARTY AT THE END OF THE WORLD
The Burnt City is the latest production by award-winning company Punchdrunk (Sleep No More), who make genre-defying experiences for audiences around the world. Blending classic texts, contemporary dance, physical performance and award-winning design installations, their work ranges from projects that use new technologies to large-scale site specific performances.
Set across two warehouses, The Burnt City is inspired by the events surrounding the fall of Troy. Inside you’ll discover a complete sensory world that is yours to explore at will, while the action unfolds around you. Move between the haunting palace of Greece to the pulsating neon back streets of downtown Troy. Follow strangers who emerge from the shadows and seek out tales hiding in the deepest parts of the city. Or simply sit and soak up the atmosphere.
