Felix Barrett

Founder & Artistic Dir
Punchdrunk

Felix Barrett is the founder and artistic director of the theater company Punchdrunk. With shows like Sleep No More and The Drowned Man: A Hollywood Fable, Punchdrunk has pioneered a game-changing form of immersive theater in which roaming audiences experience epic storytelling inside sensory theatrical worlds. Blending classic texts, physical performance, award-winning design installation, and unexpected sites, the company's infectious format rejects the passive obedience usually expected of audiences. Punchdrunk has developed a phenomenal reputation for transformative productions that focus as much on the audience and the performance space as on the performers and narrative. Inspired designers occupy deserted buildings and apply a cinematic level of detail to immerse the audience in the world of the show.
